  • The Museum is very interesting, should not be left aside his visit, although it is small it is worthwhile. The Basilica of San Francesco is precious and must be seen at night, all lit.

  • This Basilica in the center of San Salvador, is hard to find it open, is for a short and entertaining visit. Linda architecture. The Museum was closed for several days.
