This square, despite being in one of the busiest parts of San Jose, is a small, charming place that can be a real oasis of calm. The musicians liven up the atmosphere, and there are plenty of things on sale here. Guaranteed fun at any time, day or night!
This is one of the most famous sights to see in the Costa Rican capital. It directly overlooks the National Museum of Costa Rica, and is known as the site where the official decision to abolish the national army was made in 1948. It offers a beautiful view of the market.
This is a symbol of the freedom of the people of Costa Rica, who are fiercely proud of their roots. It was unveiled on September 13th, 1996, and is a particularly impressive sculpture made in Italy. I love the architecture, which really stands out from the rest of the city.
