GENOVESA ISLAND, (Narborough)

GENOVESA ISLAND, (Narborough) - The Galapagos Islands

The name is derived from Genoa, Italy where it is said Columbus was born. It has an area of 14 square kilometers (5.4 sq mi) and a maximum altitude of 76 meters (249 ft). This island is formed by the remaining edge of a large crater that is submerged. Its nickname of “the bird island” is clearly justified.
