Paseo General Escalón

High street shopping.

One of San Salvador's main shopping streets runs from the city's far west about 8 kilometres (5 miles) until it becomes Alameda Franklin Delano Roosevelt. So if it's shops you're looking for, this is one mighty stretch of possibilities, and one moreover with the advantage that it takes you through some noteworthy areas, including two attractive and/or interesting resting spots. One is Plaza Beethoven, a charming place to sit for a bit before the large fountain, and the other is the Monument to the Divine Saviour. Between these two spots you'll find the General Escalón shopping centre with a multitude of diverse shops.
