Once its mineral working operations cease, a quarry begins functioning in harmony with the landscape as a former mineral working site. That is when the biotic and abiotic elements arrive at a state of equilibrium. The scenic function of a quarry should be interpreted as a set of elements, composed of escarpments, cliffs, spoil heaps, the state of exploitation. The paper discusses the impact of quarries on the landscape and their potential value for geotourism
