What to see in El Salvador
Joya de Ceren Archaeological Site
Department of La Libertad, Canton Joya de Ceren, jurisdiction of San Juan Opico
Joya de Cerén was a pre-Hispanic farming community that, like Pompeii and Herculaneum in Italy, was buried under a volcanic eruption c. A.D. 600. Because of the exceptional condition of the remains, they provide an insight into the daily lives of the Central American populations who worked the land at that time.
