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. Despite the large uncertainty that is in the atmosphere, Liberty Park remains a pleasant place to stroll, sunbathe, talk to children who have just left school and ask for a picture taken with you. But not too long ago this square was the scene of one of the worst massacres of the country.
