  • Beautiful and compact park in the city center .
  • Central plaza of San Salvador. Many landmarks nearby such as the cathedral, national palace, national theatre and many more
  • Central park liberty
  • Historical site in the heart of the city
  • A very nice Park, opposite is the beautiful and unusual parish the Tabernacle, a very striking work inside. The square is ideal to sit and enjoy an afternoon taking an ice cream or just talking with friends while watching the passing of the zone every day.
