Kakavos Volcanic Dyke

The Kakavos Volcanic dyke is located alongside the road that leads to the Kakavos volcanic hill. This characteristic volcanic structure is a set of parallel and nearly vertical lava “walls” that stand upright in the surrounding plain.

This volcanic structure was formed by the intrusion of andesitic magma through faults in the crust where it solidified with time, creating the impressive volcanic structure. As time passed, the encompassing rocks and materials were removed by erosion, revealing the volcanic structure that can be observed today.
