San José

Costa Rica_San Jose_1San José is the capital and the largest city of Costa Rica.

The population of the Canton is estimated at about 288 000 inhabitants.

The city is the governmental and political centre of the country as well as its economic and transportation hub.

San José is greatly influenced by the European style because of the immigration (especially the Spanish one) soon after Costa Rica’s discovery by Christopher Columbus.

This European city architecture could be seen everywhere in the town – namely in the architecture of theatres, museums and houses.
