In 2007, a major eruption occured in the south-eastern part of the island.
The volcano then produced 3,000,000+ cubic meters of lava per day, between april 2nd and may 1st.
The area photographed here is called the "Grand Brûlé" (Great burnt) and the road, crossing through solidified lava, was ready one month after the "Piton de la fournaise" erupted.
