The Popocatépetl is Mexico's second highest mountain and one of the most active volcanoes in the country. The partly glaciated stratovolcano is located between Mexico City and Puebla. Its silhouette dominates the panorama of both cities. According to an Aztec legend, the volcano and the nearby twin volcano Iztaccíhuatl are the tombs of the former chief Popocatépetl and his lover, which were turned into mountains.
