We‘ve never expected this beautiful place in such a small but lovely village. The ruin was maintained extremely well with detailed explanation in multi languages.

A lovely stop when discovering the Orosi valley, the ruins are one of the few remnants of the Spanish presence in Costa Rica. Restful, green, some amazing trees, happy families & a trickling stream- what more could you want on a lazy Sunday afternoon?!

We went here to visit this nice historic church ruine. One of the very few in Costa Rica. It is a very nice park close to San Jose (one hour Car trip). This is a good place for a family picnic and take good pictures.

I enjoyed seeing the oldest church in Costa Rica. It was built in 1735. Amazing that any of it is still standing. Was glad to have seen this historical site
