  • Lanzarote had volcanic eruptions for six years from 1730 to 1736 and a smaller one in 1824, its status is classed as historical and therefore dormant, although you can feel the heat under the surface at Timanfaya.

The eruptions that started in 1730 lasting six years, covered the most fertile areas of the island, there was no loss of life, but several villages were buried under the flow and hardship followed.

Father Andrés Lorenzo Curbelo from Yaiza recorded the events of the 1730 eruptions in his diary: “On the first day of September, 1730 between nine and ten o’clock at night, the earth suddenly opened near Timanfaya, two miles from Yaiza. An enormous mountain emerged from the ground with flames coming from its summit. It continued burning for 19 days. Some days later, a new abyss developed and an avalanche of lava rushed down over Timanfaya, Rodeo and part of Mancha Blanca. The lava extended over to the northern areas to begin with, running as fast as water, though it soon slowed down and ran like honey."

  • Caldera de los cuervos was the first volcano to emerge from the eruption of Timanfaya (1730-1736).
The term "sea of lava" is particularly allegorical, when referring to the group of lava flows that poured over Lanzarote's surface from the various historic volcanoes of the island.
On the last photo, if you look closely, you will see an enormous rock on the eight hand side of the volcano: this rock  was part of the walls that enclosed the crater of the volcano and it landed there, next to it. 🌋
