The town of Suchitoto is small (and charming!)...It doesn't take a lot of time to check it out...if you're in town, might as well check out the church...

Well maintained and worth a visit. I feel that the church should best be appreciated from a far on top of the Altavista Hotel as the surrounding beauty can truely be appreciated.

The church is very nice and is worth a look. The wood work and the painting details inside are pretty. It is free to visit the church.

So peaceful and tranquil,perfect setting considering the history of the country. No charge for entry but considering the cost of upkeep,well worth a donation of a few dollars.

Another absolutely beautiful piece of architecture! Great for photos! The interior has gorgeous woodwork and is artistically breathtaking. Take the time to view the outside. There are some very unique designs and decorations to see.

The gem on the central plaza, a quiet and quaint church which is very colonial in its style and reminiscent of Spain and half of Europe some 500 plus years ago. Happily spent half an hour just relaxing and reading my guide book without being disturbed or asked to move on or buy some tourist 'tat'

A look back at Spanish colonial era El Salvador. You can see the beautiful white bell towers as you approach the town. Go inside for a quick prayer and look back in history. The church is currently being renovated back to it's original glory - can't wait to see it again when finished.

The church sits on the main square as you would expect. Suchitoto is a cute little town. The interior of the church surprised us.... lots of natural wood. It is being renovated so there was lots of scaffolding, but it's nice to see it being maintained. Worth seeing when you're in Suchi.
