It is characterized by sulphureous vapour and carbon dioxide releases and little fumaroles of hot mud as well as mineral springs. It was formed around 4000 years ago and last erupted in 1198. The area is well known for its bradyseism, a phenomenon affecting the Phlaegrean area and the Gulf of Pozzuoli. The sismical episodes of 1882 and 1970 have been particularely harsh.
