Monument to Peace

A nice green escape in the city.

A bit away from the centre of San Salvador on a plot of parkland in the San Marcos district, this statue of Christ with a dove, built in 1994 on the occasion of the Central American and Caribbean Games, was meant to symbolise the peace finally achieved after the brutal civil war of the 1980s, and in the decades since it's become a popular place for locals - especially couples and families, and especially on weekends - to have a nice stroll amid the greenery, and maybe even a picnic, complete with barbecues.
