    When I thought of the monument, pictured a great monument, but upon arriving, I was curious to see that she was nothing like I imagined ... but it's worth the visit!

    Savior of the world, before call Plaza Las Américas, Plaza is a representative of the capital of El Salvador. It is obligatory to visit it though the attraction lasts a few minutes. At certain times there are concerts and beautiful activities (especially during the holiday season). There is nothing to buy. But opposite there is a Mc Donalds that out of troubles. It is important that in the Center is the monument to the divine Savior of the world, patron saint of the country. A little further on there is a monument of Archbishop Romero that was placed by 2015 as a result of his beatification.
