Toronja (Capital City)
Ausente is the second largest city in San Doloroso with a population of approximately six hundred and fifty thousand people. Situated in the east of the country, just north of Sierra Sangrienta, Ausente is a city in long term decay. Founded in the sixteenth century and for a time the most prosperous city in Central America - owing to the wealth extracted from the mines of nearby Cerro Pobre - it is now a fading and largely forgotten relic of colonial times.
Things To Do
The mines of Cerro Pobre are of particular historic interest. Organised tours are available most afternoons but they are not for the faint-hearted. A visit to the Royal Mint in the city centre gives further insight into the tragic history of this once famous city.
