Volcán Izalco is one of El Salvador's most well-known volcanoes. It rises more than 1 km above its southern base (left) and 300 m above the saddle between it and Cerro Verde, a flank cone on Santa Ana (right). Since Izalco began erupting in 1770, the summit grew about 650 m above its original vent on the flank of Santa Ana volcano.
