Global Volcanism Program | Image GVP-07277

The broad summit of Santa Ana volcano is seen here from Cerro Verde, a satellitic cone on its SSE flank.  A series of four nested craters, the largest of which is 1.5 km wide, truncates the summit.  Houses of Hacienda San Blas are visible at the bottom of the photo.  Much of the slopes of Santa Ana are covered with coffee plantations that are an important part of the local economy.
