"Honor the Martyrs of El Mozote" El Salvador Off The Beaten Path Tip by SESM

El Salvador Off The Beaten Path: 34 reviews and 39 photos

  Monument to the 1000 murdered in Dec '81

El Mozote is a tiny village that was devastated during the war. It is not easy to find and the roads getting there are poor but it is worth the trip. There is a monument to the 1000 mostly women and children massacred in December 1981 by Government forces with US advisors in attendance

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
