|Some important geomorphosites, that are protected:
The Kakkaristra gorge is located southwest of Latsia Municipality. The impressive thanatocoenosis of the species Ostrea edulis and Balanus tintinnabulum that appear along the gorge, indicate the last stages of emergence of the Central Mesaoria Basin from the sea, approximately two million years ago.
Pillow lavas and dykes are exposed on the banks of the Maroulena River, near the village of Kalon Chorion Oreinis. They were formed approximately 90 million years ago on the bottom of the Neotethys Ocean by volcanic activity.
Teisia tis Madaris is made up by impressive vertical rocks, which resemble chiseled walls, dominate the Madari ridge. The impressive rocks and cliffs at this location, were formed due to differential erosion of the rocks that constitute the Sheeted Dyke Complex (Diabase).
Allochthonous xenoliths of Quartzite Sandstones dominate the landscape at Alykou location near Ineia village, which are exposed as a result of their high resistance to erosion in contrast to the surrounding rocks.
Petra tou Romiou is made up of blocks of recrystallized limestone of the Mamonia Complex, which formed coral reefs approximately 200 million years ago.
Kourtellorotsos (or Hasampoulia Rocks) are imposing rocks that rise in the Diarizos River valley, near the abandoned village of Prastion. These impressive blocks consist of recrystallized reef limestone.
Specific information on protected geomorphosites are available on the website of the Department of Urban Planning and Housing, under the current published development plans.
