Kaolin Quarry


Project description

The Kaolin Quarries represent the geologically oldest part of the island of Lipari. The numerous episodes of volcanic activity have produced alterations in the rocks, creating showy polychromes. For the people of Lipari, the Kaolin quarries are a place of strong appeal where the colors of the rocks, the music of the wind and the scent of the sea create a magical atmosphere. To best preserve this site located today within its property, the Tenuta di Castellaro began a project to reclaim the area, which has led to transforming the Kaolin Quarries into a geo-mining park open to all. The Tenuta di Castellaro in collaboration with the Aeolian Study Center and the Nesos Association organizes tours with nature guides and cultural events to promote this open-air museum.

This project contributes to the following Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda
