A beautiful church, but if hoping to attend a service double check the service details with the tourist information. The notices in the church were all in Spanish. We attended mass and was quite happy that it was in Spanish, until the priest gave a very very lengthy sermon! We later found masses are also said in English & Spanish... More

This Church stands on the square at Balcon de Europa. It isn't open every day but we were lucky to find it open one day when we were down that area. It's a pretty Church, typically Spanish in style with a lovely altar area.

Beautiful and reverential atmosphere with many traditional statues: some of these are used in the processions of Holy Week and other festivals. One painting I like, quite modern, shows St Joseph as a virile-looking young man - a pleasant change from most other paintings. The... More

The Church of El Salvador was built in the 17th century. What impressed me in the church was a mural at the back of the church. The mural in the church shows the Annunciation. This was the announcement of the Incarnation by the angel Gabriel to Mary. This is a very beautiful mural.
