The Carso is one of the symbols of Trieste, one of the incomparable marvels of this region, and one of the most evocative natural environments in the whole of Europe. The Carso is the characteristic high plain which is spread to the East and South-East of the city. It is more than 40 kilometers long and five kilometers wide on average. The people of Trieste love this place more than anywhere else, and many people make excursions here on Sundays. The Carso is mainly built of limestone and dolomitic rock. Its formation, which began around 120 million years ago, is due to the sedimentation of microorganisms (animals, vegetables, and mollusks) in a vast sea of which the Mediterranean is just a part. The remains of these microorganisms were deposited on the bottom of the sea and built up layers of white mud which solidified to form stone.
