Brief History

From the European settlement of Central America in the 1500's until 1821, the El Salvador area pertained to the Spanish crown. In 1821, Spanish rule ceased and the Federal Republic of Central America began governing the areas of El Salvador, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua. After that government dissolved in 1841, El Salvador became an independent country. Its boundaries today closely reflect those of the early 20th century.
