Pilgrimage to Cartago Was August 2

Read article: Millions expected in annual Costa Rica pilgrimage




It was two days ago and even though we met someone going to join the pilgrimage last week at a bus stop, I forget that it is mostly on one day, August 2, and I have yet to go watch and photograph the over 2 million people walking the 22 km from San Jose to Cartago to this church and Basilica, Our Lady of the Angels. Read the linked article above for a good description of the pilgrimage and why it happens and learn about finding the Black Virgen. 

These photos were made by me enroute to Turrialba in 2015. See also; 
My photo gallery of Churches in Costa Rica -far from as many photos as I hope to have collected eventually, but an interesting start!
