18 reviews
This is one of the top tourist attractions in El Salvador.<br>Located in the biological corridor call Apaneca-Ilamatepec, Santa Ana volcano is considered one of the jewels of Central America. <br>If you are looking for the best things to do , We have designed this tour for you. <br>The walk takes approximately 2 hours to climb and another 2 hours to descend, this can vary according to the physical condition of the people. On top of the volcano you can see one of the best craters worldwide with an emerald green lagoon, <br><br>At the end of the adventure we drive to Coatepeque lake for a relaxing time and have lunch. <br>The tour is fantastic for nature lovers or adventurers.

This was definitely one of my favorite building in all of San Salvador. The architectural design is flawless, both inside and outside. I loved the memorial to Saint Oscar Arnulfo Romero, who was brutally killed back in 1980, and became a hero of this small nation. Just beautiful at every corner, especially the painted dome!

An impressive monumental building, it cannot be said that it is an architectural masterpiece, but it makes an impression. Unfortunately failed to get inside.

From the outside this is an interesting building and on the inside it is both an oasis of calm from the city centre hustle and bustle and a beautifully decorated altar and side chapels. I am not religious but I found this both a beautiful and calming place.

Just another church out of the hundreds that I have seen in my life. But of course you have to see it because not much else to see in SS. It is a magnificent structure and the inside is very nice also. Close to all the other major sites in el centro so make sure you stop by.

Though not as imposing as cathedrals in Other places, its a nice calm place to spend some time. This was first constructed in1842 which got demolished in an earthquake in 1873. It was built again by 1888. Once again it was damaged in 1951. The third time it was opened again in 1999 March. A tiled mural facade which was done then got stripped off in 2012.
