  • The monument to the Savior of the world is a symbol of the city and the Central American country. But the site today has a lot of traffic around, making it difficult to visit.

  • The truth believed it was somewhat surprising, but the place gives a sense of insecurity due to the number of young people on skateboards and bicycles. The truth I didn't feel safe in this place, saw no presence of police or security.
