Introduction

Joya de Ceren Archaeological Site is one of the highlights of the country and is placed on the Unesco World Heritage List. It is known as a former pre-Hispanic farming community that was buried as a result of an eruption of the Laguna Caldera around 600 AD. One can call it the Pompeii of El Salvador. 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.
