Cerro las Tablas, also known as Cerro la Gloria or El Amate, consists of two low overlapping stratovolcanoes of Pleistocene age located at the SW corner of a major bend of the Río Lempa, NE of Coatepeque caldera. This Cerro las Tablas, distinct from the Cerro las Tablas of the Cerro Singüil volcanic field, lies at the SW end of a chain of Pleistocene volcanoes extending to the NE that includes Cerro las Visiones, Cerro Pacho, and Cerro Agua Helada.
