Centro Monsenor Romero, San Salvador

(40+ reviews on the web)
Specialty Museum Museum
Gain a deeper understanding of the violent recent history of El Salvador at Centro Monsenor Romero, where a group of priests was brutally murdered. Not for the faint of heart, the exhibition is unflinching in its photographic portrayal of the violence. Set in the grounds of the university, the eye-opening exhibition gives you an appreciation of the terrible nature of oppression and war. As the information on display is primarily in Spanish, a guide is recommended for those who don't know the language. Make Centro Monsenor Romero part of your personalized San Salvador itinerary using our San Salvador trip itinerary planner.
