The history of earth can be learnt at best on Sao Laurenco peninsula on Madeira island. A walk down to the last accessable point unveils a dramatic story of volcanic activity inscribed on the steepy rocks of the coasts. Cut down by sea water the rocks stand naked showing long volcanic necks running up in dark stripes. I got cought by their rough beauty.
