It is a wonderful work of art by Salvadoran sculptor Rubén Martínez. He via crucis is represented in a masterful abstraction made of steel and concrete. Discover the all-seeing eye. The Church El Rosario is a point that mixes religious fervor, history and art. Don't stop visiting her.
Definitely you should not judge the outside appearance because the beauty of the inside is absolutely amazing!! more »
Most unique Catholic Church I've been in. The ventilation of the structure is quite impressive.
On the outside nothing much but on inside it's very cool how they placed the stain glasses windows. It's free to go in so worth a visit if you are in or close to centro historico.
