Photographer's Note

This is an archeological site located near San Juan Opico and Las Flores, two villages in center-west of El Salvador. It was inhabited since the year 400 and was abandoned in the year 600 due to a volcanic eruption.
The site allows to appreciate the everyday life of a farmer Mayan village 1400 years ago, so it is often called the Pompeii of America.
It was discovered just in 1976 and is a UNESCO world heritage site since 1993.
