The National Palace is an historical building located at the very centre of the city of San Salvador. Sadly, the whole area has fallen victim to urban decay, and there are shady buildings and characters all over the area. Vandalism of the building is rampant. For 'braver' tourists that like to see the real spirit of a city, with the joys and the tears, it would be an interesting tour. Otherwise, not worth the trouble.

Tip: my best advice is to check the availability/book of the night tours organized, in this area, by the governmental tourism agency/ police department. More info about it (Spanish) http://turismo.laprensagrafica.com/2011/06/de-noche-el-centro-es-historico/

Cons: this area looks very old, decrepit and dirty.

Pros: since it's not much to see in San Salvador I recommend it; we didn't have safety issues; locals are helpful and nice; interesting to learn more about El Salvador.
