  • It is a majestic monument that honors our Lord Jesus Christ, Savior is a Catholic country in ul high percentage, this monument which makes compulsory visit

  • Nothing much special. The square underwent a recent reform. Has been modernized. The unforgivable is to visit the Church of the Rosary in the square.

  • happy to be in the center of that as Memorial square of my city San Salvador where I work now and is a very significant emblem for the capital city and already soon will be festivities in time the city held many political speeches, hurts THAT there was change of Mayor in SAN SALVADOR as before was the best period of the month of may 2015 until April 30 and so I hope the square remains so special

  • The monument is nice, highly recommended during the day. During the night I only suggest you show for special events. During the holidays it gets very lively. Go calmly but always be weary.
  • It can get really busy ! It’s the center of a traffic circle or ‘round about. There is some shopping and eats in the area. Clearly the weather affects your visit and there can be “pop up” demonstrations of various causes. As a tourist, may be best to circle ‘round and come back later. It is a MUST SEE spot tho’.
  • Next to another monument for monseñor Romero , one of the best plazas in the country. Police and military alway near by
  • No shades, is a great place to practice skate boarding or just to watch it, nice view of one of most representative monuments of Salvadorian culture, cons: no water, no much seats, close to the main street and it cause you to have the traffic noise all time
  • Beautiful and inspiring, but it has no parking spots and most of the time, there's a chaotic traffic around the monument.
