Google Earth Plug-in: Vulcania

Info Map Comments (0) Related Files


Vulcania, the "European Park of Volcanism", is a park with a Volcano theme situated in Saint-Ours-les-Roches, Auvergne, France.

Valéry Giscard d'Estaing, former President of France, pushed for the foundation of the park while he was president of the regional council of Auvergne. The museum was inaugurated in 2002.

The project has been intensely criticized: it appears that far fewer visitors are coming to the park than was forecast by proponents of the project, resulting in significant losses.

The primary architect of the park was Austrian Hans Hollein.

"Vulcania" is the mythical smithy of the Roman gods, described in Virgil's Aeneid 8:425.

One of the attractions is the 4-D film The Awakening of the Auvergne Giants.
