Cee’s FFC: ‘Painted’ in Costa Rica

For Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge ‘Anything Painted’, I thought you might enjoy the colourful artwork we saw in the little town of Sarchi, known throughout Costa Rica for its intricate arts and crafts.

Sarchi is also famous for creating the ‘Worlds Largest Oxcart’, a huge brightly painted ‘Carreta’ that sits in the Parque Central in front of the church. This masterpiece was built in 2006  and got the town’s name into the Guinness Book of Records.

Another gorgeous example of artistry is the Catholic church, built in the 1950’s and painted pink and blue.

If you think the outside is pretty, just look at the inside, which is all hand painted and absolutely beautiful.
