  • The Orosí Church is one of the very few remarkable buildings in Costa Rica. Because in contrast to its landscape and nature, the country kolonialzeitlicher architecture has to offer little things, and the modern buildings earn also no assessment apart from the farm buildings of the United Fruit period in the lowlands. The absence of kolonialzeitlicher jewelry is located on the delayed development of the country after the much earlier conquista, because it was based on the motto "no gold, no investment" away from the colonial area of interest.

Wood is found inside is old, wet, and historical. She was also the title of the oldest church preserved in Costa Rica. Something all felt us, hard to explain.. .to see

  • Good. Nice place for the people that appreciate this kind of places
