The volcanism of Lesbos island

30-40 million years ago the northern Aegean Sea was the region of huge volcano eruptions that created big parts of Lesbos island. Still today you may find the remeining lava domes, necks and calderas. There is still hydrothermal & geothermal activity and so there are hot springs like at Eftalou or at Polihnitos.
One of the volcanic eruptions covered a forest of trees and conservated them until today. The island of Lesbos is one of the most interesting geoparks in Europe due to its petrified forest at Sigri village.
