Rock of Cayaguanca
The Rock of Cayaguanca or “Stone looking at the stars” is located near San Ignacio, in Chalatenango. The rock is shared by the countries of El Salvador and Honduras, and is a natural lookout point with an elevation of 1.621 m, enabling conditions and a pleasant climate for hiking and rappelling.
The rock legend is about an indigenous population located in the vicinity of the rock. This population had a temper chieftain and his daughter, coveted by many in the village including the warrior by the name of Cayaguanca. The warrior had no wealth but having won the hearts of the princess, gathered behind his father. When this relationship is learned, Cayaguanca ordered to tie at the top of the rock and let him die of hunger and cold. Warrior Tears flooded the population and then solidified into rocks to completely cover, becoming what we now perceive as the Rock of Cayaguanca.
