Marchena Island map

Marchena has had a lot of volcanic activity, though there is only one known eruption which occurred in 1992.

It has a caldera, like many islands, however, has been almost completely filled with young lavas, some of which has spilled over and down the sides. The oldest lavas are 500,000 years old.
