I would highly recommend a visit here. It is magical. Avoid heading down there during rush hour in the morning or after 4pm. It will take you forever to get out of this area; traffic is horrible during rush hour. We parked in a parking...More

I had no idea how beautiful and emotive this place would be. I’ve been to San Salvador twice before and never new about this church. If you are in the downtown plaza, it’s a MUST SEE. The artfully done interior architecture and stations will take...More

It looks more like a piece of art rather than a church. Located from East to West, the building catches the sun in morning and follows it till night, with beautiful reflections inside. There's a minimalistic and symbolic Via Crucis piece of art inside.

During my tour of downtown San Salvador we visited this church. I really liked seeing the architecture and how it felt to be inside. Surprisingly there was a constant breeze. Interesting concept of how to build a church.

It doesn't look like much on the outside but it is truly stunning inside. I went in the late afternoon and the sun was shining straight through the stained glass windows... simply gorgeous.

Visited in April 2018. Just a few blocks from downtown and the Cathedral, this hidden gem is a must. It's like if you are bathed in light and love. A must in this chaotic city. Enjoy and breathe deeply. Dr Yves Cormier.

This place was great to see from the inside and out. In addition to the lovely stained glass, there's also a sculpture "museum" by the architect in the back of the church that depicts the stages of Christ's death used from salvaged iron. The south...More
