The Plaza Barrios is one of the nicest places in San Salvador. Its center is the silhouette of the statue of General Barrios riding, the same one that gave the name to this vibrant square. Here we can breathe in the multifaceted environment of San Salvador (but make sure to be very careful with your belongings) Venders of all kinds, artisans, prostitutes, the elderly ve come to feed the pigeons, couples, students, gang members, families coming to spend the afternoon and a few tourists gather here. It is, therefore, a very special place. Its charm lies in the environment more than any specific element.
