Arc Duran (Duran Arch)
This architectural landmark at Ahuachapán was built in 1910, by the initiative of Onofre Duran, a native of the city, who served as Vice President during the administration of Manuel Enrique Araujo.
According to history, the idea was to create a meeting place for the presidents of El Salvador and Guatemala. Arco Duran was named after its creator, who also had the support of Dámaso Aguilar.
Apparently, it is made of masonry, with a neoclassical style. In addition, this monument is protected by Hague Convention of 1954, making this place a unique architectural legacy for the city of Ahuchapán.
