The stained glass in the Metropolitan Church is really stunning, as is the beautiful indigo painted vaulted ceiling. There's also a side chapel with incredible glass too. Free to visit.
Is interting to see and to learn more about this place, The costaricans are very attach to their religion and is better for us from other religion to see their priest preached.
Beautiful old Cathedral. We were only able to view exterior as our bus tour did not stop, however I really wanted to view the interior. The pictures provided by other reviewers are gorgeous. Serene ambiance just standing outside this cathedral.
Its ok, but compared to most cathedrals in Latin America, rather plain and uninteresting. Worth wandering through if you happen to be passing, but wouldn't go out of my way to go see it (which I did)
I am not a Catholic or Christian, but I find this place to have a special energy and appeal for me even though I am a Buddhist. These mammoth structures puts us as individuals in a better perspective of how small we are relative to the structure. The place always has people there looking for comfort, divine guidance and comfort... 更多
Stop in for a rest from city walking. Although it is historic it appears fairly modern. Gorgeous stained glass and a very nice Holy Supulchre chapel. Visitors are clearly very welcome, but they are not catering tourists at all (no shop, entrance fee, etc.). IMO this is a good thing. There are bathrooms in the courtyard out the back/side entrance.
It's a modest to normal construction to be a Cathedral, its access to something beyond main chapel is very limited, it remains open most during the majority of the day, one of the most attractive items could be the statue ivory made of Pope John Paul the 2nd looking at the city 2nd avenue, one of the most transited ones.
