Stained glass window in the Metropolitan Cathedral, San Jose

The Metropolitan Cathedral is one of only two churches in Costa Rica with which I am familiar that is notable for classic religious art and architecture.

The other one is the Basilica de Nuestra Senora de Los Angeles in Cartago, which was the colonial capitol.  I have shown it in the past.  It is the most important church in the country and is the site of pilgrimages that are joined at times by as may as one-fourth of the countries population of about 4 million people.  I have shown it in the past on this website.

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

This is, um, I think, St. Theresa of Avilla? Distant memories. I knew nothing of the church in Cartagao. Must check it out.
