A prominent landmark on the Milos south coast.
Standing almost 100 m high it's striking contrast is result of differing
rock compositions . The lower
half of the cliff is sandstone, rich in volcanic ash. This unit is
overlain by abut 10 metres of layered ash beds, which in turn, is overlain
by an andesite lava flow (top third of cliff-face; dark grey in color).
The large cleft in the cliff face is
a fault line, clearly displacing the ash beds and the base of the lava
flow (right side down) by about 10 metres.
There in an excellent rock-garden
and several sea caves along the base of the cliff.
