As this is situated next to the park with the world's largest ox cart it is easy to visit at the same time. A beautiful church, typical of several you will find across Costa Rica.

This is a beautiful twin tower church overlooking the small park in the centre of town. Chandeliers hang down through the centre of the church lighting up the impressive ceiling.

This visit was a part of my trip to La Fortuna, where we were going to visit Cigarron with the amazing hot spring waters. The church is nearby the little town's square. It's really parroquial, bringing back lots of memories from colonial times. Wonderful.

Loved the square with the beautiful church and gigantic oxcart. Sarchi is a lovely town. Even the bridges are painted like the oxcarts.
