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.

If you have 5 minutes make sure you peek your head in! If you have an hour - its such a beautiful and unique church to explore. It was unlike any other church I have been in. I would consider this a must see!

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

We stopped here as part of a private tour of San Salvador. I’ve seen a lot of churches and it’s one of the best that I’ve seen. The contrast between the church’s interior and exterior is really unusual.

Touring with a guide is helpful as the church has a lot of interesting aspects that aren’t obvious if you’re touring on your own.

This is a must-see sight for San Salvador and highly recommended.

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!

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.

I got here at the perfect time! The sun was setting, and created the most beautiful lighting inside. It's such a unique church, definitely one of my favorites
