Sciara del Fuoco in Stromboli

The Sciara del Fuoco of Stromboli is a natural slope, technically a depression , which continues from the crater of the volcano to the sea. It was formed following a landslide in a sector of the volcano which took place between 7,000 and 3,000 BC. Above it there is a large pyroclastic cone in which there are three craters which, in the case of more important eruptions, give a unique spectacle : the lapilli and the burning rocks descend along the sciara until they join the blue of the sea.
It is possible to witness this spectacle through excursions both by land and by sea.
