Iglesia de San Jose de Orosi - Historical Building Orosi - Costa Rica

Built in 1766 out of adobe bricks and wild cane, the Orosi church is a look into Latin Americas history, especially the period of the Franciscan colonization in Costa Rica. Still holding services, the chapel is worth a visit, and an adjacent museum still smells of the 18th century, with impressive artifacts and information about the time period. Outside, flocks of parrots can be seen.
