TimeMag. / DepthDistanceLocation
Naolinco volcano is a field of young cinder cones in the Sierra de Chiconquiaco range north of Jalapa (Xalapa), Veracruz, near the town of Naolinco, 35 km from the Gulf of Mexico.
The largest cone is Cerro Acatlán NE of Naolinco de Victoria. This and other nearby cones have erupted voluminous lava flows that traveled to the south and SE. The Coacoatzintla lava flow from the Rincón de Chapultepec scoria cone in the western part of the field was erupted about 3000 years ago and represents the youngest lava flow of the Naolinco volcanic field.

Background:

The Naolinco volcanic field contains a broad area of scattered Quaternary pyroclastic cones and associated dominantly basaltic lava flows. The youngest Late-Pleistocene to Holocene cones form an E-W-trending area on both sides of the town of Naolinco de Victoria.
