Santa Ana Cathedral, Santa Ana

#3 of 10 in Things to do in Santa Ana
Sitting in the heart of Santa Ana, Santa Ana Cathedral boasts a neo-Gothic style not typical of cathedrals in the country. Built from 1906 to 1956, when the marble altar of the Virgin Mary was finally completed, the structure is almost completely comprised of red brick, except for its grand white facade, adorned with white ornate moldings. Two towers found either side of the face feature three bells. Step inside and find towering white and pink pillars and arches creating a sense of spaciousness in an already grand building.

  • Santa Ana's cathedral is right on the Parque Libertad, the centre of the city. As such, it's a gathering place for young and old, an extension of the park itself. Salvadorans are proud of the faith, and the cathedral exemplifies exactly that. Even though cathedral and country have fallen on hard times, their strength and faith means both will rise again.
