Giant’s Causeway

The only World Heritage Site in Northern Ireland, Giant’s Causeway is an area of about 38,000 interlocking basalt columns, the result of a volcanic eruption 60 million years ago. The tops of the columns form stepping stones that lead from the cliff foot and disappear under the sea. Most of the columns are hexagonal, although there are also some with four, five, seven, and eight sides. The tallest are about 39 ft high.
