Borawli stratovolcano, of Holocene age, rises above the eastern shore of Lake Afrera, also known as Lake Giulietti. The upper part of the 812-m-high conical volcano consists of trachytic lava flows overlying older basaltic flows. Young pantelleritic obsidian domes south of the volcano are the probable source of rounded pumice fragments found around Lake Afrera.
