  • Shame that their surroundings are in process of reconstruction, because of that I could not enjoy the view offered from the plaza. Very nice.

  • The National Palace, is located in the center of San Salvador, quite near the Metropolitan Cathedral; at the moment it is not a very safe area; sure, go with someone who knows the area. The Palace boasts a beautiful architecture, now you can meet him inside, is very beautiful, and in the surroundings you can appreciate the culture of our people, getting together to have a good time with the afternoon talks, is very nice.

  • Beautiful palace in the city center of San Salvador. .
  • 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.
