Don't judge a book by its cover

If you see this church from the outside, it looks dirty and unattractive Once you go inside it's amazing, the stained glass, the architecture, just awesome

The church is quite different from other churches I've seen. From the outside it doesn't look like anything but on the inside it is quite nice.

I am a photographer and I had to put my camera away and just enjoy this place. Its beauty is without words and thats all I can say about that! Don't let the exterior fool you, there is beauty beyond measure within!

Awe inspiring architecture with beautiful colours shining through the rainbow windows. A few interesting art works inside (towards the back) depicting Jesus Christ. The drab appearance on the outside of the building adds to the impressiveness of the inside.

Beautiful and humbling experience. The stained glass is breathtaking and the history is really intense. It is a small insight into what the Salvadorean people had to endure

An extraordinary church, which isn't much to look at from the outside (although I'll grant it is unique - think the Barbican in a state of disrepair) but once you get in - what a sight!

Well worth a visit, a unique church. I have especially liked the colored light, the construction of the ventilation and the many beautiful things made of metal. A special atmosphere.
