When Spanish soldiers conquered what is now El Salvador in 1524, they founded the city of San Salvador. It was named after a Roman Catholic festival, San Salvador del Mundo, which means Holy Savior of the World. Later, the whole country was named after the city.

The climate is tropical, and during the rainy season, which lasts from May to October, it rains every afternoon.
