This geopark designated area is both interesting and valuable not only from a geological point of view, but also aesthetically and it plays an important role in the fields of science and education.

From a tourism perspective, it is a picturesque area with its own unique character.

The area around Zebín is interesting from geological, botanical and entomological viewpoints. The basalt hill with its steppe vegetation covered slopes is a protected area. It covers 5.73 hectares and rises to 399m above sea-level.

On the western side of the hill there is an abandoned quarry with closed blocks of porcelain. On the summit you can find the Chapel of St. Mary Magdalene
