Abstract: In this article, we study various concrete algebraic and differential geometric properties of the Cartwright-Steger surface, the unique smooth surface of Euler number 3 which is neither a projective plane nor a fake projective plane. In particular, we determine the genus of a generic fiber of the Albanese fibration and deduce that the singular fibers are not totally geodesic, answering an open problem about fibrations of a complex ball quotient over a Riemann surface.
