This is a geological landscape with tourism and scientific research value that was formed by the internal forces of the Earth, including the dynamics related to tectonic movements, magmatic intrusions, volcanic eruptions, metamorphism and seismic activity. Hence, these landscapes are also called ‘tourism landscapes of endogenic geological processes’. Examples are typical structural geologic features, seismic relics, crustal deformation, magmatic intrusions, volcanic landforms, metamorphism and metamorphic rock sections.
