The geological features of the Picota volcanic mountain can be seen all along the summit of Picota. Every type of rock found in the mountains of Monchique will be on show, although the area is particularly rich in granite (a Nepheline Syenite Intrusion). This walk ends in Fornalha, where we will be able to examine local shale formations.
