The Falla de la Sierra del Camorro fault was granted Natural Monument status in 1999. Located in the municipality of Cuevas de San Marcos in the Málaga province, the fault was formed by the movement of two plates of the Earth’s crust, caused by tensions from the Earth’s internal forces. Covering more then a million square metres, the land surrounding the fault is coloured white due to the limestone present in the area. The erosion of the rock has also created passageways and karstic cavities, including the Cueva de Belda cave. The cave is a striking gallery, which always contains pools of water and is home to protected bat species. According to legend, a demon used to live in the cave, giving rise to the town’s St Mark’s day celebrations. Archaeological remains found in the area add to this cultural heritage. Visitors should also be sure not to miss the Iznájar reservoir, considered one of the most beautiful landscapes in the area.
