Fifty years and seven metres separate the different levels from arrival at the site to the lighthouse complex. The new foyer was laid down between the original level and that of the cul-de-sac built after the eruption. Originally the arrival point, this place is now the departure point for a trip through the ashes that cover the original buildings, that takes one down to the level of the lighthouse and leaves one overlooking the sea and the dormant volcano.
