The island of Vulcano is ancient Hierà, sacred. It is an island with interesting volcanic phenomena. During the eruption of 1739, the Vulcano della Fossa made an obsidian flow, visible on the northwest side of the Fossa. The last violent eruption, from August 1888 to March 1890 was characterized by the explosion of the plug that blocked the duct and by the launch of incandescent material. Since then, the volcano hasn’t erupted anymore.
From the top of the cone it is possible to admire the fumarole field on the west side of the Gran Cratere and, if you can stand the smell and have no breathing problems, you can go to one of the few points on the surface of the earth where you can see the drops of molten sulfur.
