    The first thing that comes to mind is: historical! A look to the past, a sign of how was our capital city in the last century. It is a pity that surrounding still persist a little disorder or for itinerant sales. But it is definitely a place to know if you go to the center of San Salvador.

    Located in the heart of the historic center of our capital city San Salvador is the National Palace which is a must-see in our small country. She has a great infrastructure and its rooms are simply unique and original as all differ among themselves.
