Directions to Catedral Metropolitana

If you have a day to play in San Jose and enjoy seeing old, historic buildings, check out Catedral Metropolitana. You can find the cathedral downtown on Calle Central and Avenues 2 and 4, just east of Parque Central. Originally built in 1802 in the Greek Orthodox and Baroque styles, the structure was renovated in 1871 after a major earthquake and was later updated in 1990 to include a statue of Pope John Paul II. As you walk through the spectacular building you will enjoy stunning spanish architecture, ornate biblical scenes in stained glass windows, and a tall vaulted ceiling running the entire length of the church. The Metropolitan Cathedral is worth adding to your site seeing adventures around the streets of San Jose. 

The areas around the Catedral Metropolitan and Parque Central are some of the richest in Costa Rican history. You will find the Mexican Theater as well as many shops, stores, hotels and restaurants.
