We have visited most of these sites on previous tours - it is really good to visit all these locations at the beginning of our trip. The sites connected to Oscar Romero set the context for the entire trip. Archbishop Romero is a national symbol for the people of El Salvador. He is an inspiration to the social justice movement in El Salvador and to people around the world. No trip to El Salvador would be complete without at least a day focusing on Romero.
Below are a series of images associated with Archbishop Romero including the chapel where he died and his tomb, located in the basement of the Metropolitan Cathedral.
What do you think of this day? Do you know much about the archbishop? What are your expectations for the day?
