Our Lady of the Angels Interior

It is Christmas Eve, so here is the inside of the Basilica de Nuestra Senora de los Angeles, or the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels, in Cartago. There are Christmas decorations on the pillars.

The inside of the church is laid out in a double cross shape, with an octagonal dome in the middle. In Costa Rica, hardwooods are plentiful and are used in the interior. You cannot tell from this photo, but the pillars are in the shape of a cloverleaf.

For scenes of a traditional Christmas, please check out this week's photos on Viva la Voyage. We are showing photos of the Christmas holiday season in Vienna, Austria.

Glenda,
You are indeed correct. When I chose this photo for my Christmas Eve post, I did not notice that Julie is in the photo. I will have to talk to her about her tendency to enjoy and expore the places we visit and, therefore, to walk into the field of view of my photography.

This ie a beautiful church and the rafters are awesome. Thank you for your comments on my blog. It's possible to enjoy two Christmas days, one here in Azustralia and one on your side of hte world! (Providing the plane left at the right time of course)
Wishing you both a very merry Christmas and all the best for the year ahead.
Cheers.
