THE HISTORY OF THE GORGES OF ALCANTARA

The formation of the river bed of the Alcantara dates back to about 300,000 years ago, however the current aspect of the river in the section of the Gorges dates back to the castings occurred in the last 8,000 years. [… ] the presence of river water and its percolation inside the magmatic mass caused a faster cooling giving rise to deep irregular fractures (some even chaotic) which intersected, they form prismatic structures of various configurations: “woodpile” (arranged horizontally), “harp” (slightly arched), “rosette” (radial course). The most regular formations are vertical, “reed organ”, and can reach even the 30 meters.

Very nice landscape. The gorge looks fantastic. Great scenery. Worth a visit, but unless you want to swim there and get some sun tan, you can see everthing in just an hour.
