“Very nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2014

It is a beautiful old church. The museum is very interesting so I recommend it. It explains a lot of Orosi`s past.

“Really nice church.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014

The church was one of the first built by the Spaniards who arrived in CR in the 1740s. It is a beautiful small church with beautiful paintings and a nice altar. I had only one issue, I wanted to do the tour but the person in charge of opening opened ten minutes late and went back into the church and to a room next to the altar. When we approached her, she was busy feeling up on a man who I am guessing was her boyfriend. We asked her about the tour and she said it would be a few minutes. We left and were honestly too embarrassed to stay.

“Pretty little church”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2014

I didn't do the tour, but I looked around the church and its grounds. It was built in 1745 and is a cute little colonial church worth checking out. Adds to the charm and historic appeal of Orosi. There is a large, colorful mural on the grounds that depicts Orosi people harvesting their crop.

“Modest Church with Attached Small Museum”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

We happened to visit during a wedding which was interesting to see. It looked and felt a lot like a US wedding.

This is a modest, local, Costa Rican church but with history back to the 1700's. There is a small museum attached ($1 fee) which has some good area history, art, clothing articles, and furniture.

Worth 30-60 minutes to take a pass through both the church and museum if you are in the area.
