Mount Etna

Mount Etna (Sicilian: Mungibeddu or 'a Muntagna, Latin: Aetna) is an active stratovolcano on the east coast of Sicily, Italy, in the Province of Catania, between Messina and Catania. It lies above the convergent plate margin between the African Plate and the Eurasian Plate. It is the tallest active volcano on the European continent, currently 3,329 m (10,922 ft) high, though this varies with summit eruptions. Mount Etna is one of the most active volcanoes in the world and is in an almost constant state of activity.
