Las Lajas is the largest Quaternary volcano east of the Nicaraguan graben. The broad edifice contains a 7-km-wide, 650-m-deep caldera, with the SSW rim forming the horizon here. In the foreground are part of a group of five lava domes that are located in the center of the caldera. Additional domes are on the outer flanks.
