  • The beautiful capital of San Salvador monument to the divine Savior of the world is a place of reference and identity of Salvadorans

  • The monument to the divine Savior of the world, is a place of reference and identity of the Salvadoran people, so we suggest a visit, given the advantage of being in the heart of the city of San Salvador, capital of El Salvador. Being in an area of much activity and traffic, are advised to foreign visitors that they support in a transport of any tour operator, since this place does not have parking areas. It is also taken into account that there are no major attractions, but it is only the monument itself, located in a sort of square (there is charge, since the place is fully open), is basically take some pictures and then split any other attraction of San Salvador. At times there is no security, reason why it is suggested to visit this place, in groups.
