Similar to the city of Cartago, Orosi has a long history going back to the days of the conquistadors. The architecture and nature surrounding the town is what lure visitors here.
Home to Costa Rica's oldest running church, the Church of San Jose of Orosi, the architecture here shouts history. Named after a Huetar Indian chief, the conquistadors decided they wanted it for their own, and took it from Chief Orosi. For a walkthrough of the timeline of the religious history, there is a museum next to the church. Walk the streets, or relax in the surrounding hot springs.
