The town of Cartago was founded by the Spanish in 1563, and it was an important site until the 19th century, when earthquakes destroyed most of the old buildings. Today, the small city is a provincial capital, but parts of it preserve a little of the colonial atmosphere. Note the Basilica de los Angeles and the Ruins of Cartago. Volcán Irazú and the Ruins of Ujarras also lie nearby. A short distance from the capital, Cartago is easily reached by bus or other public transport.
