Description

Capelinhos volcano is the most recent (1957/58) and western monogenetic volcano of the Capelo peninsula. The 13 months basaltic eruption started as submarine and evolved to a terrestrial one, an eruptive sequence also well exposed on the nearby deeply eroded fossil sea cliff of “Costado da Nau”.The Capelinhos eruption had a big relevance for volcanology science and caused significant socio-economic impacts in the community of the island.
