Description:
The Melosal Volcano located above the Barranco de Silva close to the town of Telde, is one of a large number of small monogenetic volcanoes of Holocene age, which are all situated along the north and north east of Gran Canaria and are associated to the current rejuvenation stage of the island’s volcanism. This is a particularly small cinder cone with a crater open to the south, originating from a strombolian type eruption possibly of around 10,000 years old or slightly less. The volcano also emitted a small ‘aa’ type lava flow of basanitic composition, which flowed down into the canyon below, over a short distance of some 500 metres. In the middle of the image to the left a shepherd watches over a heard of goats, an ancient tradition which is still frequently seen in the Canary Islands.
