A very peaceful church in the heart of Puntarenas. The high ceiling building provides a cooler area from the intense heat outside. Quite plain inside with bright stained glass windows. When we visited there was a wedding taking place. It was lovely to sit at...More

This cathedral in Puntarenas is one of the best restored buildings we say in Puntarenas. The inside is not lavish but the church bells were pretty to hear. The grounds are also pretty and wide open - worth walking by if you're in Puntarenas

This church has an interesting facade and faces a small park and plaza. Benches provide some respite from sun and heat. The adjacent plaza now features several interesting statues. The peninsula is small and this location is an easy walk.

We stopped here briefly when going from the ship on our Tom Thumb Tour and it was full of history . Nice leaded windows and can be found on the street just back from the Beach.

Passed this church on our way to the Isla tortuga boat trip. Quickly jumped in, but it's really not a place you should go and look for or make an extra turnaround.... Just another Costa Rican church, that's all...

This cathedral does not appear to be very old, in fact it looks as if it were built fairly recently, so I doubt there is any historical significance to this church. The grounds are very pleasant and peaceful, and the shade is a welcome respite...More
