Visit Ruins of Iglesia de Nuestra Senora de la Limpia Concepcion, the remains of Costa Rica’s oldest church, which was built between 1575 and 1580. The facades and altar of the church, which was originally constructed from limestone, have been restored. Located in the Orosi Valley, the ruins sit amid flat, grassy plains, and a vibrant garden full of shady trees. According to legend, an indigenous farmer found an image of the Virgin Mary, which he was unable to remove from the location. The event led to the church being built at its current location.

  • It is very close to the viewpoint of Ujarras and the Restaurant La Casona del Cafetal. It's really small which you can see in half an hour.
