Due to its exceptional geological, landascape and cultural wealth, 40 municipalities have been selected from the so-called Hoya de Guadix and Baza, a groove (depression) that began to form during the process that originated the alpine system about 65.000.000 years ago.
When delimiting its extensions, it was decided to consider the territories included in the fluvial valleys of the following rivers:
For the basin belonging to the Baza highlands, the valley of the Gallego, Baza, Golopón, Cúllar, Castril, Guardal, Galera, Orce and Huéscar rivers.
For the Guadix basin: the rivers Guadix, Fardes, Gor, Guadahortuna, Guadiana Menor, Guadalentín and its tributaries.
