Pico volcano is located on the western side of Pico Island, central Azores. The volcano contains a 500 m wide summit crater. An eruption during 1562-64 from the SE rift zone produced lava flows that reached the northern coast. A flank eruption from Pico in 1718 fed lava flows that reached both coasts.
