Cathedral Rotunda

This is the interior of the dome of the Metropolitan Cathedral in San Jose.  It is unusual to see ornate church interiors in Costa Rica.

The National Cathedral was built in the 1870, replacing an 1802 predecessor that was destroyed in an earthquake.

This week we have photos of Vienna, Austria, posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

Domes in cathedrals are often massive and ornate. Compared with the rest of the interior of this church, the dome seems quite simple. Simple but very lovely.

Have just enjoyed your posts showing details of the Metropolitan Cathedral Dave, beautifully show. The ceiling of the dome today looks amazing when you pull it in for a closer look.

It is a nicely decorated dome, captured well, Dave.
