Tectonic processes have actively and significantly shaped the landscape of Lemnos Island. Large, ruptured structures that run the width and length of the island have fragmented the coasts and given Lemnos its current “shape”.
Serving as impressive sites of geological interest found in a variety of locations on Lemnos, these tectonic geosites shed light on the evolution of the earth’s crust to create its current form. The most impressive of these geosites is the Kaspakas fault.
Large impressive faults that build intense terrain and secondary geoforms like waterfalls demonstrate the force of the processes that sculpt the Earth’s crust.
