Location

San Salvador is the capital city of the Republic of El Salvador; it is the country's most populated city as well as its most important political, cultural, education and financial center. Spanish is the language spoken by virtually all inhabitants. However, English is being spoken more widely due to cultural influences from the United States. The city is very rich in Spanish culture, and its historical center contains architecture of a kind not found elsewhere in Latin America. This makes the city a popular tourism site along with many shopping centers, museums, and historical sites.
