zalco erupted almost continuously from 1770 (when it formed) to 1958 earning it the nickname of "Lighthouse of the Pacific", and experienced a flank eruption in 1966. It is known as the 'Lighthouse of the Pacific' because until the late 1950's it was a very active volcano and its intermittent eruptions (every 5 minutes apx.) could be seen from the Pacific Ocean nearby. Izalco erupted last in the early 1970's thru a crater created on the south side of the volcano. The eruption period was short and the side crater has since disappeared. The volcano still smokes occasionally and is considered active.

San Vicente Volcano

Other names: Chichontepec

 The San Vicente Volcano, also known as the Chichontepec is located South East of Lake
 Ilopango, in the Department of San Vicente and its twin peaks reach a pont of highest
 altitude of 2,182 metres. It is a andesitic stratovolcano the was constructed within the La
 Carbonera Caldera wich is the peak next to the volcano and its only visible on its South
 West side. Its Northern and Southern sides are covered with lava flow traces from its
 main vent but the traces on the Eastern side originated from a vent on the upper flank.

Chichontepec volcano, also known as San Vicente in Salvador It is a paired stratovolcano hence name "two breasts".(Chichontepec.....Nahuat for "Two Breasts".) The eruptive history of San Vicente volcano is not well known. There is no definitive record of historical eruptive activity.

The latest eruption recorded was in 260 AD neighboring the Ilopango Caldera, some eruptions recorded in 1643 an 1835 are proved to be false. It is a dormant volcano but numerous hot springs and fumaroles are found in the Northern and Western flanks of the volcano.

The San Salvador Volcano (also known as Quetzaltepec) is a complex volcano situated northwest to the city of San Salvador. The crater has been nearly filled with a relatively newer edifice, the Boquerón volcano. The city of San Salvador is adjacent to the volcano and the western section of the city actually lies among its slopes. Because of this close proximity, any geological activity of the volcano, whether eruptive or not, has the potential to result in catastrophic destruction and death to the city. Despite this, the volcano is iconic of the city, and several TV and radio antennas are situated on the El Picacho peaks and the crater of Boqueron. El Picacho, the prominent peak is the highest elevation (1,960 meters altitude).

 La imagen es un copia blanco y negro, en el libro está a color y el lugar es precioso. Según la publicación, navegar en el cráter fue posible hasta la erupción de 1917, el agua era color verde esmeralda. Ese mismo año para variar, hubo terremoto. La laguna después de los sucesos desapareció.

The cilindric cone of The San Miguel Volcano known as The Chaparrastique rises from sea level to an altitude of 2,130 metres. It is one of El Salvador?s most active volcanoes and it is part of El Salvador?s volcanic arc. It is located on the San Miguel department of El Salvador, with the Pan-American and other coastal highways running cross its northern and southern edges it threatens transport, coffee fields and small communities in case of eruption. It has erupted 29 times since 1699. It has a broad, deep crater that has been molded by several historical eruptions.

The pilasters are crowned with molds that pick up the weight of the longitudinal beams on those that support the inclined canvases of the vault and the roof of the lateral wings. These last ones have a horizontal roof with visible beams.

 Puerta del Diablo

 The rain storm of San Dionisio, in October 1762, led to the cracking of hill El Chulo (Puerta del Diablo). The whole rock formation broke into three, and opened a view to the eastern part of the country and setting the environment for numerous stories and legends. More recently in 1906 a similar tragedy occurred.

 At a kilometer to the south of the Park Balboa, there is the Hill El Chulo, whose rocky formation caused by a plentiful storm in 1762 gives it the name of the “devil's door”. The multiple panoramas contemplated from there are of sublime beauty and of impossible description. There is an acoustic shell like a cave in the rocky mass, scenario of different recreational activities.

Its name is due to its curious formation: Two big rocks, coming out of the abyss, that cut the mountain which give the appearance of a gigantic portal opened to the landscape at the bottom. From here, the coast of Pacific Ocean can be sighted, Villa of Panchimalco, the lake of Ilopango, the Hill of Pavas, and the volcano of San Vicente.
