Pyroclastic cones and lava flows at the NW side of the Laguna del Maule volcanic center rise above the shore of the lake.  This cluster of small stratovolcanoes, lava domes, and pyroclastic cones covers an area of 15 x 20 km within a Pleistocene caldera.  Pleistocene and Holocene basaltic lava flows were erupted down the upper part of the Maule River valley and on all sides of the lake.   Photo by Oscar González-Ferrán (University of Chile).
