Lo que dice el Arxiduc:

“The other floating dock of the Columbretes, known as the ‘Spanish Staircase’, is located on the outer side of the island and is used when the wind comes from the east.

The area surrounding the Spanish Staircase is composed of yellowish basaltic lapilli-tuff, mixed in with black basaltic fragments that are almost copper-coloured as a result of decomposition, as well as a large amount of pebbles that, taken together, look like puddingstone. Some of the fragments consist of compact grey plagioclase basalt with a partially conserved crust of scoriaceous basalt. The compact basalt is mixed in with olivine, as well as scoriaceous olivine and augite.”

Datos proyecto Nixe III:

Along the entire outer edge of the island, the west, we come across several posts the fishermen used to tie their boats to in addition to dropping their anchors when fishing was still permitted. We finally come toEscala de España.

The seabed does not drop as sharply here as it does along the north cliff.

At this level, if we move a little towards Ferrera, we can see the island’s horseshoe shape from the outside.
