Centro Monseñor Romero

Calle Israel Ayala

Learn about El Salvador's modern history at Centro Monseñor Romero (The Monsignor Romero Center)

The Monsignor Romero Center, located on the grounds of the Central American University, has a museum that honors the victims and heroes of the Salvadoran civil war. While much of the material—including albums full of disturbing photos—may not be appropriate for children, the center, when considered alongside other historical sites that remember this era, helps adult visitors understand part of the bigger picture of El Salvador’s recent past.
