This is a closer view of Costa Rica's National Theater. It was constructed in the 1890's when the population of San Jose was just under 20,000 people. Quite an ambitious achievement for so small a city!
The interior is very ornate. It is used for the symphony and other artistic performances. When President Obama visited Costa Rica in May last year, his address to a gathering of Central American economic leaders was held in the National Theater.
This week we are showing photos of the Perito Moreno Glacier in Patagonia, Argentina, on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
