“iglesia El Rosario”
Reviewed May 27, 2012

If you are interested in architecture this is a must see. Relatively new (1960), this is the third church on this site. The first was the original San Salvador Cathedral (destroyed by earthquake I think about 1850), the second burned in the 1950s. the architect is primarily a sculptor in iron, and much of his work is inside. The ugly outside does not prepare you for the amazing interior. Often looks closed, but ask the guard for entry.

“Most unique church”
Reviewed April 22, 2012

One of the most amazing churches we have visited. Stain glass windows changed the ambiance as the sun passed over. Stations of the cross - beautiful & powerful artwork

“Attractive Stained Glass in a Modern Church, Heart of San Salvador”
Reviewed February 24, 2012

Iglésia El Rosario is a modern edifice on Parque Libertad, one block from La Catedral Metropolitana, in the heart of San Salvador. Although the distinctively curving exterior is a bit tired, the interior ceiling is colorfully patterned stained glass and the church contains several older statues of note.

“Highlight in San salvador”
Reviewed January 15, 2012

wonderful - a must see in San Salvador - a hidden gem which from outside you would not consider. Bringing a bit of modernism into the Catholic church! Visit it!
