Cartago Travel guide
Cartago : Michelin's recommendations
Cartago, the former colonial capital, has been razed many times by the Irazú Volcano. It is now the epicentre of Costa Rican Catholicism and religious fervour is concentrated in the Basílica Nuestra Señora de los Ángeles and its miraculous Black Virgin Mary, La Negrita. Don't miss the highly colourful pilgrimage on 2 August.
