It is also known as “Almolonga’s Volcano” or “La Muela”, it is formed of rocks and dried lava mainly, it’s last recorded eruption was in 1818. From its highest point we can enjoy a view of “Santa Maria” volcano and the “Siete Orejas”.

walking at the foot of the volcano by José Moreno

For the so-called “Llanos del Pinal” they live on the shores of Volcan Santa Maria, sometimes when the Santiaguito Volcano erupts most of this part is covered with ash and visibility is almost zero.

Por el llamado “Llanos del Pinal” ellos viven en las orillas del Volcan Santa María, aveces cuando el Volcán Santiaguito hace erupción casi toda esta parte se cubre con ceniza y la visibilidad es casi nula.
