Details for: Zitacuaro-Valle de Bravo
A panoramic view from the north shows the 3200-m-high dacitic Cerro el Cacique lava dome, part of the extensive Zitácuaro-Valle de Bravo volcanic field in the central Mexican Volcanic Belt. The dome rises dramatically over the city of Heroica de Zitácuaro (100,000 inhabitants), which is built on top of a pyroclastic-flow deposit originating from collapse of the Cerro Pelón lava dome (visible to the left of the Cacique dome). Andesitic lava flows to the south in the Valle de Bravo area are as young as about 5000 years. Photo by Lucia Capra, 1993 (courtesy of José Macías, Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México).
