Project to give Ar crater a new look
The Ar Municipal Culture and Tourism Directorate has drawn up an environmental project that will give the area around Ar meteor crater, the second largest in the world, a modern look and will make it safer for visitors.
Local authorities will build a 12-meter-high steel tower from which visitors will be able to see the crater. Thanks to the project, developed by technical personnel from the Cultural Assets and Museums Directorate General, the crater site will be preserved as a clean space. As per the plan, the facilities will have capacity to host 8,000 to 10,000 visitors every year.
