Data from the Global Volcanism Program of the Smithsonian Institution
Details for: Tres Virgenes
The Tres Vírgenes volcanic complex consists of three stratovolcanoes constructed along a NE-SW line. La Vírgen (the youngest and highest peak) is seen here at the left from the SE, with El Azufre forming the sharp peak at the right and the still older El Viejo forming the low peak at the extreme right. The sparsely vegetated dark lava flow in the center foreground is one of the youngest from La Virgen volcano. A major plinian explosive eruption from a SW-flank vent took place about 6500 years ago and was followed by effusion of a thick lava flow.
