The snow-capped summit of Malinche volcano rises to 4461 m NE of the historical city of Puebla.  Pleistocene glaciers have excavated the flanks of the volcano, but deposits of Holocene eruptions have recently been dated.  Several tuff cones and explosion craters are found on the flanks of Malinche, at least one of Holocene age.   Photo by Ismael Morales, 1993 (Universidad Autónoma de Puebla).
