The Nicoya colonial church is awaiting the final touches it needs to change the image of closed doors, fleas and bat excrement that has plagued it for the last five years.

Its Baroque, colonial style characterized by the figures on its facade and its lime color has been preserved since the church’s construction in 1821, even during the structural renovations after its closure in 2012.

Now, Nicoyans hope that it reopens its doors next year with repairs to the sacristy, the chapel and the dome.

Here, we explain the restorations and archeological discoveries made by the Culture Ministry over the last five years.
