Cliff Veta Blanca

Address:Cala Rovellada. Colera
Price: free of charge

Veta Blanca is a cliff on the coast of the village of Colera, Costa Brava north, about 300 meters from the famous beach of Cala Rovellada and is quite a geological curiosity for white color between the nearly black cliffs around. This white color is clearly visible, even in satellite images. This is probably a subvolcanic rock, aplite kind. It was formed in the earth's crust by the consolidation of magma that moved up through a crack in the crust itself. It is made of quartz and other minerals, and white and fine texture are due to the absence of black mica. It is a good idea to go kayaking on the area.
