Such a beautiful modernistic representation of the Catholic Church. It was tranquil, well lit and had a large amount of thought and creativity go into its design. I particularly liked the stations of the cross at the far end.

A truly fabulous work of art.

I had never seen any churches like that throughout traveling all over the World. The architect did a phenomenal job with the design, with the arched roof, and the natural light flowing though the panels on each side. The air flows through this design, making it so cool and comfortable in there. An absolute must do while in San Salvador!

This was the first stop of our city tour of San Salvador. From the outside it looks like anything but a church. The curvature of the structure with the colored glass is mesmerizing to see with the sun moving across the sky.

There's quite a history to this beautiful church. I loved the colorful windows with light shining through and the amazing art done with scrap metal, including the signs of the cross stations. Have been to hundreds of churches around the globe and never seen anything like this one.

was really pleasenly surpised by the Iglesia El Rosario - its got massive cultural significance and history, yet from the outside I genuinely thought it was an old abandoned building.

The multicoloured glass windows are disguised behing concrete grouting from the outside, so the floor to ceiling rainbow inside was a real pleasant surprise.
Some really beautiful modern religious sculptures too - definitely worth a quick stop in if you're in san slavador

Beautiful church and the lighting cannot be explained in words. It’s too beautiful and you’d never know you were in a Catholic Church.

It’s right down in the city center, so it’s easy to get around. They only ask for a donation to enter, so it’s cost efficient.

It is located accross from the Libertad Plaza. Looking from outside, it does not seem like a church to me and not very appealing. Entrance is on a small street to its right. Fee to enter is $2.00 for foreigners, cheaper for locals.

The altar is simply decorated with a cross. There are few religious statues located infront of the altar. What is interesting are the lights emanating from the two sides of this church.Truly beautiful and amazing!

The grey role in a side street of liberty square is rather brutish and to be honest ugly from the outside. The bell tower and the cross seem like an after sort, but on the inside the rainbow windows give it a stunning beautiful light.
Additionally the twelve station made from rebar and concrete are outstanding.

Beautiful stain glass architecture and very calm inside. Nice and cool after walking outside in 90 degree heat. Pay the $2 entrance fee. One can see this in about 5 minutes if pressed for time. Be sure to check out the courtyard where the bathrooms are as well as a nice little cafe for coffee and sweet deserts (which was closed when we arrived at 10am

This is a must see if you are in San Salvador.
If I hadn't looked it up before hand I would have wondered what my guide was thinking as the outside is very plain indeed but as soon as you enter you will see what the hype is about.
Not only the lighting but the sculptures are like nothing else I have seen anywhere.
