Quite a surprise visiting the Santa Lucia church. I think it's nicer than any of the churches in San Salvador, very beautiful indeed. I understand it's been fully restored in the last couple of years.

It is extremely long Church, and I found it very well kept With newly painted outside. It is the first time I have seen china as part of 2 Church towers' roofs.

Definitely worth a visit to escape the heat of the day. Stunningly beautiful inside, while the outside is beautifully lit as the sun fades. The Chinese plates attached to the roof tell their own story....look out for them!

An oasis of calm from the plaza outside. We felt like we were intruding as there was a mass on so left fairly quickly, however we saw there were some nice icons so is worth a visit.

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'
