I've went through each folder and each file of the documentation of the pdk, but I didn't manage to find any document describing the layers used during the layout. Is there any way I could extract the full name/ purpose of each layer from the pdk?

You can find this info in design rule manual, and in PDK (Virtuoso technology file, layermap file, etc.).

To find the file, you can search with Linux "find" command:

find <path> -type f -exec grep -H 'metal1' {} \;

or (if you know the file name or a prt of the file name):

find <path> -name '*filename*' -ls

techfile.tf in the process directory will have all
of the layer info (and then some).
