San Vicente (or Chichontepec) Volcano, El Salvador



San Vicente (also known as Chichontepec) is a stratovolcano in central El Salvador. It's located next to the town of San Vicente and is the second highest volcano is El Salvador. In the indigenous language Nahuat, Chichontepec means ''the mountain of the two breasts'', because its double summit resembles a woman's bosom. The volcano has two craters on each summit, although not exactly at the top. Numerous hot springs and fumaroles are found on the northern and western flanks of the volcano. The last signiffican eruption occured more than 1,700 years ago. A great addition to my collection of postcards showing volcanoes!
Thank you William for nice postcard and stamps as well!
