A humbling and beautiful experience

To see how this man of God lived and died and to be so close. It was truly a spiritual experience. A must for any tourist visiting El Salvador.

This is the place where Archbishop Romero was murdered. Its a very modern building and has an exceptional via crucis inside.

One of my favorite places in El Salvador. I love the chapel. Very beautiful in a simple way and the spirit of Archbishop Romero is still present. The museum in his living quarters is also very interesting. Again simple yet moving.

This hospital is located next door to the church where Oscar Romero was assassinated. He loved to visit the terminally ill patients. The Sisters were available to show us his Casita and were very kind.

We went here as part of a trip specifically to lean more about the archbishop. The sisters have done nice job in keeping the property peaceful and giving the visitor a real sense of how Oscar Romero lived. The chapel was moving. Really a must see.

Our group of ten wanted to tour the city and learn about the history and culture instead of visiting the beaches like many others. This was a must see! After watching the movie Romero in preparation for our trip, it was moving to see his humble living quarters, to view the altar where he served his last mass, and learn... More

I've been to the Chapel where Monsignor Oscar Romero was assassinated before but this time was especially meaningful. It is best to go in a group led by someone who is familiar with the story and can help you experience the place properly.

Knowing that Archbishop Romero was martyred here just give you that feeling of holiness. The altar where he was shot to death while saying mass is a silent witness to that sacrifice of life for the sake of the defenseless poor.

We visited as part of a city tour. I'm so glad that I was able to see this small museum comprising his small house and garden, together with the chapel where he was assassinated. The Hospital Divina Providencia is run by the Carmelite Sisters. If the Romero residence appears closed, ask someone at the chapel for help; I'm told they... More

I stopped over in San Salvador mainly to visit the chapel, i was not disappointed! The chapel and the living quarter of Fr Romero were just too peaceful, it is humbling to see the simple room where he lived and wrote. Ring the bell if center door is closed, go to the small office in the back of the chapel... More
