This was the last attraction I was supposed to visit in my 5-day long (but-not-so-long) Belize-El Salvador vacation, and it was right what I needed. It really is a peaceful place, and I was reminded of the Lotus Bahai temple in Delhi, till the sermon began, which was also nice. Could not however take advantage of this visit completely, since...

Perhaps, the best place to meditate and forget about the noisy fast-paced downtown San Salvador. Massess are early morning and in the afternoon. Sermons are conforting and the wide open spaces therein allow you to sit alone with your thouhgts and taslk to your creator in a way you would only on top of an isolated cabin in the woods.... More

San Salvador's downtown hides the most beautiful non-colonial church in El Salvador and proves the saying "do not judge a book by its cover". Surrounded by smog and noisy from a crowded street, you'll be impressed by a magnificence and colorful arquitecture.

A very interesting stop if you're in San Salvador. However, I highly recommend having a guide or someone who is familiar with it be there with you, because only they can explain all the unique features of the church and share its history. If you walk in green you will not get a full appreciation for this site.

This church is truly one of a kind! It's beautiful inside, different from anything you've ever seen. We just took a quick stop in here, but I'm glad we did!

This definitely the most beautiful church I have seen in my life (since I haven't been to Rome). This place will throw you off, from the look from outside to inside. From outside it doesn't even look like a church, but once you get inside you are welcomed by a light of colors. If you are visiting San Salvador, this... More

Built in the 60's this church is a must-see for fans of interesting architecture and modern art. It is sad to see the cracking concrete and beginning decay of a treasure.

Ok - if you have nothing better to do pop in for a look but I don't understand the 5 star reviews at all. It's an unusual church with nice lighting due to the windows. Nothing more.
