San Salvador is named, for the Savior of the World. If you visit San Salvador you have to make sure to drive by one of the city´s most important and oldest monument: El Salvador del Mundo. The landmark is an obelisk in a busy rotunda. At the top of the obelisk a globe of the world and on top of it the figure of Jesus Christ the Savior.
I am usually drive by it becuase I am forever taken by the church that is exactly four blocks to the North of the Monument: the church of San Jose de la Montaña. The church has in the outside the most charming mosaic of Saint Joseph with his adoptive son. Baby Jesus is rubbing his eyes as children do when they are fighting to go to sleep.
