Nice stained glass
Jan 2020 • Couples
We stopped in a little before noon on a weekday and a service was underway. We didn’t stay long but were able to see the beautiful stained glass windows.

Near to the city center
Sep 2019
It is close to the city center and very near from my hotel. You can see it in one day in San Jose. Nice

We were lucky enough to participate in church. The actual stain art and all the saints on around the wall were breath taking!!

Beautiful inside and outside
Jun 2019 • Solo
Definitely my favorite church building in San José. I particularly love the intricate wood artistry found on the inside. It could definitely use some renovations. But, it is WAY more interesting than the cathedral.

We enjoyed the visit of this cathedrale as we were passing by. It is more a standard latin american cathedrale which does not standout in anything.

A mix of styles!
Feb 2019 • Couples
I was curious to see a church in Costa Rica but I wasn’t impressed. The mix of styles that you see outside continues on the inside and left me very cold.
Needless to say you can see that the people that attend the church are seriously devoted and then you can understand that the “quality” of the church is absolutely not relevant!

Fine pillars
Dec 2018 • Couples
Iglesia de la Merced is one of the finest buildings in San Jose (Catedral Metropolitan is THE finest) - so pay the church a visit, enjoy the decorated pillars and kan peace with yourself and the world among the many praying people.

Right in the centre of town...
Nov 2018
and close to where the airport buses stop, this old Spanish church is beautiful outside and inside. Well worth going in to soak up the atmosphere

Beautiful church
Jul 2018 • Couples
It is an active church, beautiful inside. Park across the street is full with homeless people and people who beg for money. So be careful walking to the church.
