Description

The Basílica de Nuestra Señora de los Ángeles (Our Lady of the Angels Basilica) is a Roman Catholic Basilica, located in the city of Cartago. The Basilica, built in 1639, is dedicated to the Virgen de los Pardos, officially known as Virgen de los Ángeles (the Lady of the Angels). The Basilica constitutes a unique mix of colonial architecture as well as 19th century Byzantine style, the current (restored) building dates back to 1939. The Basilica of Our Lady of the Angels is consecrated to the Virgin of Nuestra Señora de los Ángeles, a small representation of the Virgin Mary carrying the infant Jesus, said to have been discovered by a peasant girl in Cartago. This legend prompts an annual August pilgrimage (Romeria) to the Basilica. © Flickr/ClarksK9s
