Iglesia El Calvario, San Salvador

Iglesia El Calvario, San Salvador (must see)

Iglesia El Calvario dates from the seventeenth century when it measured 16 yards and was built from metal and lime. Its location was considered the edge of town at that time. In 1854 was destroyed in a earthquake and later restored. The main material used during the restoration was wood which was consumed by a fire in 1908. After a period of time a real church was constructed, beautiful and concrete, that was built by known architects from Italy and Spain in Gothic style. It is an important model of churches in San Salvador due to its beauty and importance in the development of church architecture.
