Cerro Redondo is the central feature of a Quaternary volcanic field immediately west of Lake Guija near the border with El Salvador. Two overlapping basaltic shield volcanoes were constructed along a N-S line west of the lake. Small lava fields, capped by cinder cones and small lava domes, are located east, west, and NE of the shield volcanoes. Unlike in other volcanic fields in SE Guatemala, many of the cones in this area show random orientations unrelated to regional trends.
