3 Squares in San Salvador

Squares in San Salvador
Plaza Gerardo Barrios
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. You can't miss it, especially since, along with the Liberty Park area, it's one of the safest places in San Salvador.

Plaza Libertad
Plaza Libertad is the heart of the whole city of San Salvador. Today it is a huge open space with a statue commemorating the independence of El Salvador in its center. On the edges we can see the old and beautiful arches reminding us of better times, when San Salvador was a beautiful colonial city, peaceful, when crime and gang members had not yet taken it over.

But not too long ago this square was the scene of one of the worst massacres of the country. Thirty years ago, after a fraudulent election, newspapers of the capital wrote this about the park: "It was a little after midnight, when members of the security forces came and opened fire on the crowd who had been concentrated there for several days peacefully protesting against the electoral fraud. Over 300 people were murdered. " It must not be repeated ...

Plaza Morazan
This pleasant little square is always bustling. It offers the best possible views of the National Theatre and the nearby street markets. As in the rest of San Salvador, the most picturesque and interesting parts of the square are the people and situations that you may encounter if you sit and watch. On the banks of the square it's very easy to end up chatting with a young student eager to know something about Spain, a seller of "tamales" complaining about how little they sell, a man ve is getting things in order to go to the "United" (USA) .... A good place to watch the sunset before returning to the hotel. Night time can be reckless in San Salvador ...
