The Cuilapa-Barbarena volcanic field contains approximately 70 Quaternary scoria cones, generally less than 100 m high. Many of the cones are located along the Jalpatagua fault, which extends SE from Guatemala City, north of the chain of volcanoes extending across Guatemala. The youngest cones were estimated to be of Holocene age, perhaps less than 1,000 years old. Photo by Lee Siebert (Smithsonian Institution).
