“Church”
Reviewed 13 March 2014

Nothing special. Would be better off taking a side trip to the town of Coronado and visiting the exquisite church there. No compatidon at all.

“The best in San Jose”
Reviewed 8 March 2014

This is a cathedral that isn't too pretentious. Enjoyed the crispness of the place - what i mean is that it wasn't run down and had been cared for. Lovely architecture and stained glass.

“Simply Splendid!”
Reviewed 9 January 2014

It's a gorgeous church! All of the churches in Costa Rica are pretty but this one can almost compete with the structures in Europe.

“Lovely!”
Reviewed 27 April 2013 via mobile

This is a must for church viewers. It's a beautiful cathedral that watches over the city in all its glory. Definitely good to the eyes! Make sure a wander through all of the church as well as the lovely grounds. Peace be with you.
