Fernando Llort is a beloved artist in El Salvador. The Gallery has originals, prints, and numerous items painted by the Master himself. This is a highly regarded and a MUST visit in San Salvador. I have taken social work students from Grand Valley State University in West Michigan every year for the past 10.

This art gallery moved tto a new location about a mile further down the road. This location was demolished and turned into a mall with several places to eat.

This place is just off the street. It has a small gallery and store that accommodates all price points. From mugs to tile art work to prints and reproductions. You can finish browsing and shopping the place within an hour.

If you do not know anything about Fernando Llort, read about his life before going here. This man has single-handedly and selflessly helped many people in El Salvador by teaching them a trade to make a living. The place is part gallery...part gift shop. It is not fancy, and lacks organization, but we so enjoyed wandering around and soaking up... More

I read several reviews that lead me to believe that you could buy authenic Salvadorean items to take home. This place is nothing more than two resturants and a small bontique. It's two stories tall but entire second floor is closed. Biggest disappointment of my trip. There is a wall with art work of Fernado Llort that looked ok. I... More

We stopped here during a private tour of San Salvador and we were so glad we did!! The story behind his art is amazing and the pieces on display are gorgeous !!! Brightly colored tiles and ceramics make great gifts -- and the staff was friendly. A nice stop along the tour route!!

Fernando Llort is not only a great artist whose works hang in museums around the world--known as the "Picasso of Central America", he also created El Arbol de Dios (Tree of God) to train other artists so they could earn a livelihood alternative to working in the agricultural fields. El Arbol de Dios has excellent gallery and gift shop for... More

My favorite place to visit and to shop! Beautiful items, all hand made and hand painted. We were able to get a tour of the workshops to learn the process. We also were fortunate to be able to see the tiles that Llort designed and made that once hung on the entrance to the Cathedral (until the bishop had them... More

If you come to El Salvador, you must come to El Arbol de Dios. Fernando is one of the few living legends. I personally have not been able to meet him but I hope that one of these days that I am able to go to will meet him. The place is not that big but the work is beautiful.

Fernando Llort's work is copied everywhere in El Salvador, Guatemala and even Honduras. So stop by the gallery to see the original work so that you can recognize quality. There is a good selection of just about anything you would want to buy.
