150. escuela metálica

a memorable landmark in the heart of costa rica’s capital, the escuela buenaventura corrales is one of the few remaining jewels standing in the small city of san josé

designed and prefabricated in belgium, it was then shipped to limón, costa rica’s caribbean port, in 1892.

it has been restored and is boasting the splendor it once held over a century ago.

it is one of the lone bastions in the center of san josé that wants to kindle the hopes of many that dream that this city will one day be a safe, clean and beautiful cultural threshold to the boundless natural treasures that this small country is privileged to contain.
