Do not be deceived by the outside of this church - it is one of the most interesting works of architecture that I have seen. It is all concrete, steel and glass that is put together beautifully.

From the outside one has not a clue of the beauty inside. Once you walk inn, the space opens skyward and lets you appreciate some very intricate and beautiful stained glass. Its a mst see if you are in San Salvador

You will never imagine how nice this church is if you only look at it from the outside. The way light gets inside through the different windows in different colors is really amazing. I am not a huge fan of visiting churches, unless they are significant by some reason, but this is one church worth visiting for sure!

From the outside this church looks inconspicuous and hardly worth a visit. But on a sunny day, the inside is enchanting! The stained glass makes the whole place magical. And it was built with no pillars, so you have a sweeping view of the place. Worth a visit inside.

Amazing architecture, i really like it, and in my point of view, if you go to the center you must see it. Just be careful on the city center.

As I have traveled I have been a lot of churches and this is one of the most memorable. The contrast between the outside and inside could not have been more striking. The colors from the windows were so beautiful as they reflected off the walls. The stations of the cross were so different and so poignant. This church is... More

This church is very unique in style. The stained glasses are magical. The decoration of the wall is very symbolic and religious. Must be visited.

Based on outside look, you may have no interest to go inside. But once we walked in, it was magical. Definitely a must visit in San Salvador

It doesn't look like much from the outside, but man is it beautiful when you walk through the front doors. There's quite a history with the church too, so make sure you either read up on it or hire a guide to tell you the stories. Very worth a trip.
