Pedreira do Campo, Sata Maria, Açores

Natural Monument of the Quarry of Camp, Figueiral and Prainha

The Natural Monument contains underwater volcanic rocks and marine fossil sediments, unique in the Azores Archipelago. The sedimentary levels, by their fossiliferous expression and age (about 5 million years) allow to establish inter-macaroniic stratigraphic correlations between Macaronesia and the European and African continents, and contribute to the understanding of the geological history of the Northeast Atlantic and of the colonization of the macaronesian islands.
