Description:
The Roque Bentaiga (largest monolith at the rear of the image) and the Three Kings (below Roque Bentaiga and in the foreground) are one of Gran Canaria’s most dramatic and beautiful natural phenomena. Resulting from extensive erosion of differing volcanic materials, the largest monolith to the left background, the Roque Bentaiga and the smaller rock formation to its right are composed of breccia-type pyroclastic deposits that were emitted from the Roque Nublo stratovolcano, between 3.9 and 3 million years ago, whilst the two rock formations in the foreground (part of the three Kings) are the eroded remains of magma, from a fissure vent leading up to a small strombolian volcano that was situated on the south western flank of the Roque Nublo stratovolcano.
