  • Alafuela is a pointed Tower can be seen from anywhere in the city, a small town. Feelings are recreational park, Parque central is located across the street from people all over the city!

  • If, before heading back, staying in this small village, don't miss the opportunity to visit the Cathedral. Recommend you see also the nearby Museum and the market.

  • The Cathedral in the Baroque style located in the heart of Central Park. Built from 1782, was completed in 1863; I know that could not to go inside the 22 days to walk into the town, so unfortunately, big buildings in Alajuela has become an iconic building in the city.
