Monseñor Romero Center, San Salvador

4.8
#3 of 15 in Museums in El Salvador
Gain a deeper understanding of the violent recent history of El Salvador at Monseñor Romero Center, where a group of priests was brutally murdered. Not for the faint of heart, the exhibition is unflinching in its photographic portrayal of the violence. Set in the grounds of the university, the eye-opening exhibition gives you an appreciation of the terrible nature of oppression and war. As the information on display is primarily in Spanish, a guide is recommended for those who don't know the language.

  • More modern than I expected a crypt to be. I found the cathedral more interesting honestly. But this man is important to the city and culture.  more »
  • There's a ramp that makes it accessible. Place of peace, faith and prayers. It's a chapel. The grave is ahead. Do you see a monsignor Romero lying in his last dream, and surrounded at 4 angles by 4 images, of little ones, of angels?
