limestone and loamy-limestone crag of 584 m


Explanation:
http://costadelsol.net/web/archidona/archidonauk18.htm

The Archidona lagoons are situated over materials which belong to the Trias Keuper of the Middle Sub-Baetica area, being mainly formed by loamy-limestone, clay and rising evaporations, basically plasters. It is precisely the abundance of these last elements which has favoured the exploitation of the quarries near the lagoons.
