Jesus Christ of Ochomogo

This monument is situaded up in the Ochomogo hills. It is a reminder, for all Costa Ricans, of those who died in the months of March and April in 1823 when the Imperialist tropos, that supported the idea of Costa Rica´s becoming part of the Iturbide imperium in Mexico, fought against the Republicans who were firm believers that Republicans had to remain completey independent. One of the outcomes of ths battle was moving the capitla from Cartago to San José.
