Global Volcanism Program | Image GVP-03895

This dramatic photo looking SE down the axis of a chain of volcanoes extending across Guatemala shows six Quaternary volcanoes and one large caldera.  Beginning in the right foreground are three volcanoes, San Pedro, the conical Atitlán, and Tolimán, that are constructed on the southern shore of Lake Atitlán, which fills a large Pleistocene caldera.  The three volcanoes in the distance are, from left to right, Agua, Acatenango, and Fuego.  Tolimán-Atitlán and Acatenango-Fuego are paired volcanoes along N-S lines.
