Description

San Salvador is the second largest city of Central America with a population of about 1.8 million people. We will visit the main landmarks of the city including downtown, where we will visit the Central Square, home to the National Palace, a neoclassic building built in 1905; and the Metropolitan Cathedral which substitutes the previous edifications destroyed by earthquakes or fires. The Cathedral is surprisingly wide and large (Neo-Romanesque and Byzantine) and celestial drawings are painted on its cupola. Inside there is a stand of wooden figure of the Divino Salvador del Mundo and the tomb of Archbishop Romero, a martyr and an important figure for El Salvador and a Saint for the Catholic Church.

Rosario church is also an interesting stop. With its bizarre building, it holds the grave of Father José Matías Delgado, a very important figure of the Central America independence. Then we will also drive by the main avenues and streets until we arrive to a local crafts market where you will be able to buy souvenirs.
