Geology site description:

In the fishing port of Estepona, on the Costa del Sol, you can observe a nice geological fold. The lighthouse is build on top of a folded sequence of Jurassic deposits. The nicest fold can be seen in the garden of the old custums house. Especially the colours of the folded strata are very nice, as well as the Mediterranean plants and flowers.
