Fun Fact: There are actually several hundred cones of volcanoes in the Mexico area, but Parícutin is the only one known to have erupted. The worst of Parícutin’s volcanic activity took place in 1943, with its lava rising to about fifty feet below the crater’s rim.

The volcano derives its famous name from the village of Parícutin, which now lies buried under its lava. The entire village was relocated to an uninhabited area nearby. Surprisingly, only three deaths have been registered in the entire history of volcanic eruptions of the Parícutin. Major volcanic activity of the Parícutin was witnessed until 1952. Today, the volcanic mountain stands at a height of 424 meters (1,391.08 ft).

The hardened lava from Parícutin covers an area of ten square miles, and the volcano sand (fragments of volcano material) covers an area of twenty square miles.

The city of Parícutin is located two hundred miles West of Mexico City. Ashes from Parícutin reached distances as far away as Mexico City.
