Monument to the Constitution

A modern statue of Justice downtown.

One of San Salvador's busier downtown traffic roundabouts, at the intersection of Bulevard de la Constitución and Calle San Antonio Abad, is worth a stop for a look at a naked lady holding a sword and a set of scales, supported on a white framework a couple of storeys high. Popularly called La Chulona ("the naked lady"), she actually symbolises Justice and the country's loyalty to the new constitution put in place in 1993 after the wrenching civil war of the previous decade, ended by peace accords in 1991. Like another statue raised around that time, the Monument to Peace, this was executed by Salvadoran sculptor Rubén Martínez.
