The Geophysical Observatory of Lipari is one of the branches of the Catania Section of the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology (INGV). It was founded in 1967 to monitor the seismic phenomena and the activity of the Great Crater of Vulcano. Over the years, the facility has been equipped with state-of-the-art technology and now provides 24-hour seismic and volcanic monitoring of Etna and the Aeolian volcanoes. The Geophysical Observatory of Lipari is located in the southern part of the island, on an esplanade on Mount Guardia. Its position makes it one of the most panoramic points of the island. In fact, it offers a 360 degree view of five of the seven Aeolian Islands.
