Nuevo San Juan Parangaricutiro is a small village near the Parícutin volcano. The city is called "Nuevo" or new because the old San Juan Parangaricutiro was destroyed during the formation of the Parícutin volcano in the year 1943. Along with the village of Parícutin, San Juan Parangaricutiro was buried beneath ash and lava. However, the tops of cathedrals in old San Juan Parangaricutiro still protrude from the volcanic deposits.
