Bárcena volcano forms the elongate island of San Benedicto, seen here from the SW in March 1955. The circular summit crater at the center and the lava delta to the right of the tuff cone formed during an eruption in 1952-53. Pleistocene lava domes are located at the far NE tip of the island. Dark-colored lava from the 1952-53 eruption can be seen in the summit crater.
