Details for: Lajas, Las
Las Lajas is the largest Quaternary volcano east of the Nicaraguan graben. The broad, low, basaltic shield volcano is truncated by a 7-km-wide, 650-m-deep caldera, whose SSW rim forms the horizon. In the foreground are part of a group of five coalescing andesitic-dacitic lava domes that are located in the center of the caldera. Additional domes are present on the outer flanks. Las Lajas itself is of probable Pleistocene age, but youthful cinder cones on the flanks are similar to those of the Nejapa alignment and may be of Holocene age.
