The Geode of Pulpi & Mojacar village
Full Day Tour
Limited availability for the giant geode of Pulpí, don't miss your chance!
We start our day with a short (coffee) stop in Carboneras, a typical fisherman's village, known for it's 'ánforas de mar and the castle of San Andres, after which we continue to the beautiful white
Moorish style village of Mojacar. Mojacar is, amongst other things, known for Almería s good luck symbol, the indalo, and its history dating back from Greek times. On our way to Mojacar you will see a small part of the natural reserve Cabo de Gata.
The highlight of our tour is of course our visit to the Geode of Pulpí, which is the biggest geode that can be visited in the world. The geode was only discovered in December 1999, by members of Madrid’s Mineralogist Group. It is a colossal mineral geode measuring 8 metres in length and 2 metres in height, which is fully covered in huge gypsum crystals, some of them measuring 2 metres long. Its transparency and spotlessness make it a wonder of nature. Given its dimensions as well its crystals size, transparency and perfection, this is a unique phenomenon.
From the geo-heritage viewpoint, Mina Rica holds many elements of interest besides its gigantic geode and mineralogy.
