Liberia church

As a contrast to the Metropolitan Cathedral in San Jose, which I have shown during the past week or so, today I am showing a photo of the main church in downtown Liberia.

Liberia is the capitol of Guanacaste province, the area of northwest Costa Rica where Tamarindo and other beach resorts are located.  It has a population of more than 60,000 and an international airport.

This is a large church by Costa Rican standards.   It has an attractive, modern design.  Most churches in Costa Rica are rather modes, small town and village charges.

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

This building is quite a contrast from the one you posted yesterday. I like both of them for different reasons.

Quite beautiful and modern.

Good overall view of it. We've visited a couple of times. The architecture is ingenious for the locale, for example, the wide eaves and lattice-like brick walls to promote circulation. Now if it weren't for that huge telecom tower just to the south...
