This Tiny Town in El Salvador is Covered in Street Art

Art

Concepción de Ataco is located in the lush mountains of El Salvador, surrounded by coffee farms. The town is small and has a few cobblestone streets, some cafés and restaurants, and a lovely boutique hotel. However, what really makes this town stand out is the street art: Almost every building in this little town is covered with a colorful mural.

The town didn’t always look like this, though. Years ago, two artists from San Salvador moved here to open a coffee shop and crafts store called Axul. They decided to paint a colorful cat-themed mural on the outside of the shop to draw people in. The quirky cats inspired the artists and townspeople to paint more buildings. Now, there’s a mural on every street and the town has turned into a giant kaleidoscope of colors.
