BackgroundA chain of nine basaltic-andesite volcanic centers of Plio-Pleistocene age was constructed along a NW-SE-trending line through the southern portion of the city of Guadalajara. The centers range from small cinder cones, such as Cerro San Bartolo, to larger composite volcanoes. The westernmost cones are partially overlapped by southern Guadalajara's streets and buildings. The largest volcanoes are located at the SE end of the chain. Cerro el Papantón de Juanacatlán marks the SE end of the chain. The small stratovolcano Cerro el Molino was constructed SE of Cerro el Papantón de Juanacatlán. It is offset slightly to the south of the trend of the rest of the chain, south of a fault block of the Chapala graben.
