Striking both inside and out, with its interior affording a unique kind of multihued tranquility.
An icon of modern architecture.
Located downtown near Plaza de la Libertad and the historic quarter, El Rosario stands out not because of its history but because of its modernity. An icon of modern architecture in Central America, built in 1962 in an unusual halfmoonlike wedge shape, it merits a look inside, as well. Its soaring space is layered with various tiers of stained glass in a truly impressive effect, flooding walls with colour and giving the entire space an otherworldly feel mixing tranquility with a richness that's very clean and contemporary, yet timeless in feel. A number of interesting modern sculptures and bas relief complete the interior decor.
