Nicknamed “La Ciudad de las Dos Caras de la Moneda” (“The City of the Two Sides of the Coin”), San Salvador is a city if great contrasts; economic, social and natural. El Salvador’s capital has traditionally been famous for its elevated crime-rate. However things seem to be changing rapidly; and for the best!
San Salvador was founded in 1525 by Spanish conquistador Pedro de Alvarado, 30 kilometres away from its present position. It was in 1546 when the settlement changed location and obtained the city status.
Modern San Salvador looks straight ahead into the future and has nothing reminding the dark shadows of the past. Reborn and renewed, shiny San Salvador takes great pride in the top universities, world-class museums and booming artistic and cultural scene.
