Iglesia Santa Lucia, Suchitoto

4.6
#1 of 13 in Things to do in Suchitoto
Constructed in 1853, Iglesia Santa Lucia sits at the top of the city's attractions list, a result of its original colonial era structure. The exterior features a tall facade adorned with arches, two bell towers on each side, an empty tower in the middle, and a pediment featuring a very old clock. Head inside to be greeted with a rich display of wood. Wooden pews and solid wooden arches sitting on stone platforms, which support the dome shaped nave, complement the predominantly light colored interior of the church.

  • It's beautiful outside and inside as well. Very quiet place with plenty of sunlight from windows and doors. Worth visiting even if you are not religious.
  • Probably one of only two (or three) things of note in Suchitoto; the wooden columns in the nave are notable and maybe even unique!
  • Beautiful house of God.
  • Beautiful church. One of my fondest memories of El Salvador
  • The Church Santa Lucia, built in 1853, is located in the Centre of the city, and is one of the main attractions of Suchitoto by its original colonial structure.  Among the most noteworthy architectural features are its façade and in the interior of the Church is appreciate details in wood that retain their original design and have been strengthened for their conservation, such is the case of the hollow columns and forged in the Baroque style with rococo trend.
