AAA Editor Notes

Mercado Hill (El Cerro de Mercado) is just n. of the city. A mound of high-content iron ore said to be one of the largest single iron deposits in existence, it rises some 700 feet above the surrounding plain and is still producing. The hill was named for the man who discovered it in 1552, Ginés Vázquez del Mercado.
