Details for: Flores
Volcán de Flores, seen here from the SSW, is one of the largest of a cluster of small stratovolcanoes located behind the main volcanic front in SE Guatemala. The volcano is also known as Volcán Amayo and lies about 10 km west of the city of Jutiapa. The 1600-m-high summit rises up to 600 m above a basement of Cretaceous and Tertiary sedimentary rocks and contains a steep-sided summit cone capped by a shallow crater breached on its eastern side. A NW-SE-trending alignment of cinder cones trends across the flanks of the volcano. Photo by Francesco Frugioni, 1999 (Istituto Nazionale di Geofisca e Vulcanologia, Rome).
