Conical San Miguel volcano, one of El Salvador's most prominent landmarks, rises across a low saddle SE of Chinameca (Pacayal) volcano.  The 2130-m-high San Miguel is seen here from Cerro el Limbo, a cone on the western flank of Chinameca.  The southern side of Chinameca's 2-km-wide summit caldera is visible at the left.
