Monument to the Divine Savior of the World (Monumento al Divino Salvador del Mundo) Tours

15 Reviews
Monument to the Divine Savior of the World (Monumento al Divino Salvador del Mundo)
The Monument to the Divine Savior of the World (Monumento al Divino Salvador del Mundo) is a monument located on Plaza El Salvador del Mundo (Savior of the World Plaza) in San Salvador City, El Salvador’s capital city. The monument is composed of a tall, four-sided concrete base pedestal that supports a statue of Jesus Christ standing on top of planet earth. The structure was designed by José María Villaseñor. This monument is a symbol that identifies and represents El Salvador and Salvadorans throughout the world—after all, the country’s name translates as “The Savior,” and Jesus Christ is its patron.

To study the sculpture in more detail, bring a pair of binoculars or a camera with a good zoom function. It’s hard to get to the sculpture directly, as it’s located in the middle of a busy traffic roundabout with no pedestrian crosswalk leading up to it. Once you’ve made it to the monument, taking a seat on the steps at its base is a nice way to relax from sightseeing and watch the city buzz by. You can also see the monument featured on the back of old banknotes and vehicle license plates.

Practical Info

The Monumento al Divino Salvador del Mundo is located near downtown San Salvador at the Savior of the World Plaza. The plaza is a grassy traffic island at a busy intersection, so there is no parking available. You can also travel by bus or taxi to the plaza, or walk 1.2 miles (2km) from the city center.
Address: Alameda Franklin Delano Roosevelt, San Salvador, El Salvador
