Trip Planner: Central America / Costa Rica / Province of Cartago / Ujarras / Ruins of Iglesia de Nuestra Senora de la Limpia Concepcion
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.

Ruins of Iglesia de Nuestra Senora de la Limpia Concepcion reviews
The ruins are not at the spot where the tripadvisor app says it is. On that spot is a new church. Our Spanish isn't good enough to find out where the ruins actually are. more »
Not just the church (which is in much better condition than we expected). It sits in a large enclosed area with manicured gardens, spaces for a picnic and clean washrooms. Parking is guarded. more »
Cool quick trip or place to hang out for the afternoon
Nice place with a beautiful small ravine. It is safe and friendly.
