Scenic Sunday

Scenic SundayI'm posting over here today!

Taken in 2002 while in Costa Rica at the Basilica de Nuestra Senora de los Angeles in Cartago.

Cartago was established in 1563 by Juan Vásquez de Coronado, a Spanish governor and conquistador. One of the finest Spanish colonial cities in terms of architecture during its time, much of Cartago was destroyed in 1732 by the eruption of the Irazu Volcano. Sitting at an altitude of nearly 4,800 feet above sea level, the weather in Cartago is much cooler and drier than its neighboring valley towns.
