About the history of this geological phenomenon, there are only guesses, but no conclusive evidence. Some scientists believe that the hills are formed during the late Pleistocene by vertical earth movements. Others interpret it as a special form of erosion interspersed with water-impermeable shale limestone and sandstone formations. A third (very controversial) theory finally says that it is in the hills around small, formerly located underwater volcanic cone, which received its round shape over time by ocean currents.
