Ilopango volcano is a 8x11 km wide caldera at the eastern margin of San Salvador city, El Salvador. It is elongated to the east, has 150-500 m high walls and contains the scenic Lake Ilopango, one of El Salvador's largest.
The caldera is the result of at least 4 large plinian eruptions over the past few tens of thousands years. The lastest of these occurred in the 5th centruy AD. A historic eruption in 1879-80 formed Islas Quemadas ("burnt islands"), a group of islands in the center of the lake, corresponding to the summit of a mostly submerged post-caldera lava dome.
