Le géopatrimoine de l’île de São Nicolau (Cap-Vert). : Inventaire et stratégie de valorisation

Abstract : This article aims to present the inventory of geoheritage sites performed on the island of São Nicolau (Cabo Verde), in order to value them according to a geotouristic strategy. The methodology used in the process of locating, inventorying and geoheritage assessment in the studied island followed the ProGeo proposals, modified and adaptied to the characteristics of an island territory. Thirteen geosites distributed on the Island were inventoried, including a Protected Landscape. These geosites presents elements of scientific interest (structural, stratigraphic, coastal landforms, volcanic landforms, and mineral resources), cultural, educational interest and also the rarity, diversity of landscape and other related elements. The country has a richness of natural sites which translates into the existence of a valuable geological and geomorphological heritage. The link between geoheritage and others elements that are associated with him, as the biological heritage, landscape and culture, reflects the territorial values and how they have to be preserved and valued.
