El Rosario in San Salvador, Sci-Fi Style Church That Looks Like Plane Hangar

DSC01271

From the outside the thing looks more like an airplane hangar than a church. A peek inside opens fascinating world of modern art and unbelievable composition of shapes and colours. Best church ever!

The construction was finished in 1971 and since then the building was probably an inspiration for some Sci-Fi movies, starting with “Cube” for example. The second one would be quite recent “Prometheus” where authors simply define god as an alien civilization. I will leave you the rest, but don’t forget to check out the “emergency space capsule” somewhere in the pictures below!

During daytime there are no artificial lights. The effect was achieved by the use of colourful windows.
