Liberia, “Ciudad Blanca” (White City), is the capital of Guanacaste one of Costa Rica’s seven provinces and is one of the most colonial cities in the country. Liberia received its name from the color of the soil and the authentic adobe homes that were often painted white with lime. The red-tile roofed buildings were made from ignimbrite, a hard rock formed by solidification of chiefly fine deposits of volcanic ash, as white as burning magnesium, Traditionally Liberia served the cattle ranching cowboy, but in modern time, cultures have merged and has adapted to a widespread community to include locals and tourist alike. This is evident with Monumento Sabanero, a life-size bronzed cowboy, and El Boyero, a life-size bronzed ox and oxcart, representing the strong history of the city with Burger King and Papa John’s only a few blocks away. Visit Liberia’s’ modern church “Iglesia Inmaculada Concepcion de Maria”, in Central Park, La Argonia the oldest church. (Also referred to as La Inglesia de la Ermita de Resureccion) and adobe homes that date back over 150 years. Finish you adventure with some local dining and shopping.
