CORR NA MÓNA MARBLE OUTCROP

An outcrop of metamorphic marble in the village with multiple internal folds

This marble outcrop formed when an ancient ocean began to close 480 million years ago. Extreme heat and pressure from the tectonic activity of the closing ocean metamorphosed (transformed) the limestone into the marble we see today. It is one of the oldest rocks found within the aspiring geopark.
