Mount Kumeta (1233 m.s.l.m.), located in the south-west direction of Piana degli Albanesi, is a rocky massif that holds numerous fossils and has a vegetation of mosses and lichens.
In the façade partly facing Piana degli Albanesi the mountain shows some still visible signs left by the marble quarries.
The chromatic tones range from flowery white, to pink, to Rosso Kumeta or Montecitorio, so-called because the columns of the Palazzo Montecitorio, seat of the National Parliament in Rome, were made with this marble.
