Welcome to La Palma


These bright, primitive images of mountain villages, campesinos (farmers) or Christ are synonymous with the modern Salvadoran art movement. Llort taught local residents how to create the same images and started a successful cooperative.

When it is time to move on, there are challenging peaks to ascend. Serious hikers often prefer lodging in the neighboring village of San Ignacio as it’s closer to the main trails.
