There are a few legends about Cerro de Oro at Lago de Atitlan, which is in front of the two volcanoes on the left. Doing research on the internet, I found other articles but nothing about the story that I heard and which I am going to write today.
I have been told, I cannot remember by whom, that along time ago there were only two volcanoes, Volcan Atitlań and Volcan Tolimań at the shore of Lago de Atitlan. Those two were a couple for millenniums until one day a third volcano, San Pedro at the right of the picture, appeared. As things go, it did not take long before Tolimań fell in love with San Pedro and as a result Atitlań became so jealous that he cut Tolimań’s head of, which rolled down the slope to become what is now called Cerro de Oro. If you look closely you can see the silhouette of a face that lies at the shore of the lake. The light in this picture emphasizes the outline of the face nicely.
