From this point, looking east, a panoramic view opens up towards the Monte Volaia group, Cogliàns and the Creta di Chianevate. These reliefs are made up of platform limestones dating back to the Devonian (420-360 million years ago) and constitute the nucleus of the most imposing Palaeozoic organogenic reef visible in Europe today. This structure is made up of clusters of the skeletal remains of organisms welded to each other. It developed over about 25 million years, in areas of warm, shallow and well-oxygenated seas. The gradual lowering of the seabed allowed the growth of generations of organisms that formed a reef over 1 km thick, about 5 km broad and almost 100 km long.
