Audible Editor Reviews

Sometimes referred to as "The Pompeii of the Americas", Joya de Ceren is the only UNESCO World Heritage site in El Salvador. Formerly a small farming community, as early as even the 13th century BC, it was evacuated in the 3rd century AD after the eruption of a nearby volcano. Because of weather conditions and ash consistency, the town has been remarkable well preserved. In this Audio Journey, host Patricia L. Lawrence tells us about the sites around town. As always, Lawrence is both friendly and informative, a real pleasure to have as a travel companion.

Publisher's Summary

Audio Journeys explores the ancient ruins of a Mayan village in El Salvador. Twenty kilometers northwest of San Salvador, the capital of El Salvador, is the 650-year-old village of Joya de Ceren, the only UNESCO World Heritage Site in El Salvador.

What makes this site unique is that the everyday life of the Mayans was preserved when around 600 A.D. a volcano erupted spewing volcanic ashes that covered the land, caused the common people to flee their homes.
