  • The palazzo del Banco Central de Costa Rica in a façade in dark glasses that make him look like a cube fell out of the sky. Very nice carvings on the side of the entrance, opposite is a representation of the Costa Rican people and on either side of the square in front of as many sculptures of Jose Sancho, one of the country's greatest sculptors. The sculptures themselves are carried out with ferrous materials of recovery

  • If you do the free walking tour you can learn about the history of this bank and the first international McDonald's located across the street. The statues are cool...I thought they were taller though.  more »
