This interesting, modern church is across from Plaza Libertad. Its architectural design is modern and was completed in 1971. Ruben Martinez, the church's famous builder, wanted it to be a "church facing the people and not on the run from God." To achieve this, he eliminated most of the pillars to create a very airy and open feel to the church. My favorite part of the church was its inside. Through a succession of windows and different types of lights the studies create a good place to meditate in silence. Also, the Cross sculptures are beautiful, especially that of the risen Christ, built in wrought iron. In short, one can not miss this wonderful church is also one of the only contemporary art shows quality throughout El Salvador.
My daughter was assigned a university project relating to this church, so when we visited we had the change to discover not only the church, but his lovely town full of friendly, easy-going people (as most people tend to be in El Salvador). The church remains standing and still retains 95% of its original structure and materials, something surprising in El Salvador, a land of volcanoes and earthquakes.
