Basílica de Nuestra Señora de los Angeles (Our Lady of the Angels Basilica)

Basílica de Nuestra Señora de los Angeles (Our Lady of the Angels Basilica) Review

This basilica is a hodgepodge of architectural styles from Byzantine to baroque, with a dash of Gothic. The interior is even more striking, with a colorful tile floor, intricately painted, faux-finish wood columns, and lots of stained glass. It is the focus of an annual pilgrimage to celebrate the appearance of La Negrita, or the Black Virgin, Costa Rica's patron saint.
