The Basilica of Los Angeles is a Catholic church where, according to tradition, someone from the slum, Puebla of the Browns, found an image of Our Lady of the Angels in 1635, which is attributed to many miracles. A chapel was built there, which replaced after stronger temples and capacity, especially in 1675. The basilica was erected during the episcopate of Bishop Anselmo Llorente y Lafuente. The earthquake of May 4, 1910 ruined the temple, which was replaced by another of considerable size, in Byzantine style. Building started in 1912. The architect in charge of designing it was Lluis Llach called Llagostera. It is the main center of religious pilgrimage in Costa Rica, especially on the occasion of the feast of Our Lady of the Angels, which is celebrated on August 2.
I experienced an unmatchable level of tranquility while I was there. The spectacular view makes you feel like you´re close to the clouds. It´s near Carthage and is relatively close to the city of San Jose. Definitely worth a visit!
These flowers in the pictures were growing in a small lake, and they seem suspended there. The colors and the surrounding environment is perfect, very attractive and so is the entire garden. Worth knowing!
