El Salvador

In 1524, the first Spanish settlers arrived on the territory of present-day El Salvador, and a few years later they founded their own settlements. The country remained under Spanish rule for nearly three centuries and gained independence on 15 September 1821. Over the years, El Salvador, like most of its neighbors, has gone through many difficult moments. The last particularly difficult period was the long civil war. Since 1992, however, Salvador has taken the path of economic reforms that promise a better future for that country.
