Visit Santuario Nacional Nuestra Senora de Los Angeles to see one of Cartago's architectural gems. Built in 1924, it stands on the grounds of an earlier church destroyed in an earthquake. Legend has it that a little girl found a statue of Our Lady of the Angels on this site; the statue, however, kept disappearing and returning to the place where it was found. Today, the basilica still houses the treasured statue, kept in a golden shell. Admire the distinctive Byzantine architectural style of the basilica, a site of pilgrimage for millions of people each year. Don't miss a peek into the dramatic, cavernous interior.

  • We found this accidentally. It’s not so often that I give 5 points. I visited many churches and cathedrals around the globe and I don’t believe in God. So I only can say it’s looking so beautiful...

  • Like many places around the world that are considered Holly sites, this is one them. The strong believe and faith for millions of people living in Costa Rica, as well as thousands living abroad. If you have absolutely faith and believe, as many before you that a illness, goal of achieving something, or a request from your heart, the Virgen of Los Angeles, will provide anyone with absolutely faith the miracle.
  • Just a beautiful church in the old metrópoli. Make sure to go down the outside stairs to the right of the church to sip the running water holy water. Doesn't hurt to shower in blessings.
