  • It is not an architectural gem, but if it is historical gem, especially after the canonization of Oscar Romero, bishop and martyr, who died celebrating Mass in this chapel.

  • Inside you can find the church and monseñor Romero museum, it can be difficult to find parking if a wedding is going on, you can also park outside, very clean and friendly staff
  • Hospital of great quality and professional warmth, where every patient is treated with love and respect although this is a place of palliative care feels the warmth of the family and staff. The 29A passes through the UPAM that can be a landmark to get to the hospital.
