This rugged landscape at approx. 1100-1400 m asl is the result of millions of years of chemical and mechanical weathering of the prevailing limestone. The often regular arrangement of fractures, where both types of weathering are most intense, and the largely horizontal bedding of the rock layers, have led to spectacular landforms.
