Proyecto de Conservación Cihuatán

Fondo del Embajador para la Conservación Cultural

En 1929, Antonio Sol realizó las primeras excavaciones arqueológicas en la historia de El Salvador aquí, en la pirámide principal de la antigua ciudad de Cihuatán.
Ahora, 85 años después, se están realizando trabajos para conservar las tres escalinatas descubiertas por Sol, para que puedan ser apreciadas por los visitantes y para que perduren al futuro. Este proyecto es apoyado por una donación del Fondo del Embajador para la Conservación Cultural, de Estados Unidos, otorgado a la Fundación Nacional de Arqueologia de El Salvador, FUNDAR. Agradecemos a la Embajadora de Estados Unidos, Mari Carmen Aponte, por esta importante contribución al patrimonio cultural salvadoreño. El proyecto se realiza en colaboración entre FUNDAR y la Secretaria de Cultura de la Presidencia.
