Overview
More
In Costa Rica, August 2nd is known as la Dia de la Virgen de los Angeles, or the Day of the Virgin of Los Angeles. Despite this day being the 3rd most religious holiday in Costa Rica outside of Christmas and Easter, it extends further than just its single feast day. Hundreds of thousands of Costa Rican pilgrims descend on the city of Cartago for days approaching their reverence of the Virgin of Los Angeles, or “La Negrita” (The Black Virgin) at La Basilica de Nuestra Senora de los Angeles. Once they have arrived you can observe their devotion to their patron Saint as many approach the church on their hands and knees.
