How was the Catedrales beach formed?
The coastal cliffs have been eroded for centuries, forming arches, some of which are 30 meters tall.
The rocks in the cliffs of the beach are made up of slate and quartzite. The orientation of the rock makes the current shape possible, with the constant pounding of waves during the movement of tides. Due to the fragility of the arches, only some of them remain.
