This square in the centre of Alajuala features a 120+ yr old statue of Juan Santamaria who as a teenager helped repel invading forces, Now concerts and fiestas are held here , but an interesting stop or walk thru for history buffs

This is a nice place to go to see local families gathering, children playing, grandparents sitting around on benches. I enjoyed it.

We arrived on 10 April with the intension of departing the next day for Manual Antonio. Big surprise when the streets are closed for a parade. Enjoyed the Juan SantaMarie parade and festival--national holiday for a local gents that kicked the Americans butts in the 1880s.
