  • The Church of El Salvador is a most magical place. It's so peaceful. Mass in this Church is like no other. The singing is always beautiful, and even when there is no ceremony going on, the Church itself is a lovely quiet peaceful place to sit and think.
  • This church is very pretty at night when it is spotlit.
  • Tried to visit today , Dec. 16. 2016, at 1100 hours, But it was closed?...
  • Small parish church but well cared and elegant
