A fetching mix of old and new
One of the most charming corners of San José
Named after an 1840s leader of Costa Rica, one of San José's more fetching corners is located at Avenida 3 and Calle 7 north of central downtown and practically adjoining the Parque de España. Parque Morazán dates back to 1887, when the city government drained a swamp on this site and created the park. In the middle is the Templo de la Música pavillion, and another significant landmark on its edge is the Metallic Building. Other buildings include the the Aurola Holiday Inn.
