Details for: San Salvador
A cable car line to San Jacinto on the SE side of the city of San Salvador provides access to this impressive vista of the massive compound volcano of the same name towering above the sprawling capital city of El Salvador. The flat-topped peak at the left is BoquerĂ³n stratovolcano, which has grown within a 6-km-wide caldera formed by collapse of the older El Picacho volcano (the peak at the right) and another volcano to the NW. Most of the four historical eruptions recorded at San Salvador since the 16th century have originated from flank vents. Photo by Rick Wunderman, 1999 (Smithsonian Institution).
