  • I remember when there were many large and beautiful pine... However came a mayor and I ruined the small nature preserving the monument, it hurts!

  • During the year the plaza to the divine Savior of the world, is used for various activities. In August is the meeting place for parties which are made in his name. However in December becomes a beautiful place, it is decorated with special lights, and is accompanied by a Christmas tree giant, with some beautiful lights. In the square become musicians, typical food, characters to take pictures and a lovely atmosphere. It is the time in which would recommend to visit the square, because it has greater control of security police, by that peace can take pictures.

  • A very emblematic plaza in the capital city. A good place when to spend time alone or with friends and family. You can young skaters having good time as all visitors. Unfortunately, no restroom and no disent place to buy a good snack. But you can take it from other place!!
  • Heart of El Salvador monument. Coffee shops, bussiness centre and restaurants around. Commercial semi-safe area.
  • El Salvador del mundo is a very nice and neat place to go with your family and friends. There's a nice square where people take pictures and simply spend time together
  • For the foreign people is a beautiful place to visit for the meaning of the monument, specially in Christmas when is kind of crowded but is having a very enjoyable environment in the night with the Big Xmas tree 🎄🎄🎄
  • Located on Plaza El Salvador del Mundo (The Savior of the World Plaza). A statue of Jesus Christ standing on top of a global sphere of planet earth, placed on top of the tall four-sided concrete base pedestal. It is a symbol that identifies and represents both El Salvador and Salvadorans throughout the world. The monument was built on a pedestal originally used to decorate the tomb of Manuel Enrique Araujo, President of El Salvador between 1911 and 1913. The statue was damaged in the 1986 earthquake and was rebuilt the year after.
