Joya de Cerén
View the utter destruction caused by the 6th century volcanic eruption of Loma Caldera, which consumed El Salvador's Joya de Cerén under 14 layers of deadly ash. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, it is commonly referred to as the "Pompeii of the Americas". This site represents one of the best preserved ruins of its type to be found anywhere in the world due to the rapid fall and unusually cool temperature of the suffocating ash. As you walk along the wide thoroughfares of the excavated village, it's hard to not appreciate the fact that we are all subject to the whims of mother-nature - no matter how much we may try to convince ourselves to the contrary.
