Background

The youngest (but pre-historic) eruption from Rota produced thick andesitic lava flows from a NE-trending fissure NW of the summit. 2 small lava domes, El Bosque (also known as Lomas San Ignacio del Bosque or Cerro Ojochal) are located on the plain 2 km north of the flank of Rota, and are aligned NNW-SSE on the same direction as many other eruptive fissures, which are transverse to the Marrabios Range volcanoes. Near Rota volcano is a large field of lava flows erupted from numerous small cones and maars.
