Cascata Maggiore di Laconi Waterfall

The Greater Laconi Waterfall is an incredible example of 'cooperation' between the earth and living species. In fact, a moss (the cratoneurion) absorbs carbon dioxide from the water and releases limestone that forms sponge-like rocks. These, in turn, create a weeping willow effect that makes the waterfall plunge always a little different. The phenomenon is called travertinisation.

Needless to say, this makes the area very cool and teeming with vegetation. A good 12 metres high, it is not the only waterfall to be found in the fascinating Aymerich Park, about which there is a dedicated file, near Laconi in central Sardinia.
