Architect Andrés Fernández will lead another walking tour Dec. 7. This time the event will be in Heredia.
Fernández is well known as an architectural historian, and he has led a number of tours of various San José barrios. Alianza Francesa sponsors the events.
The tour next week begins at the Escuela Félix Arcadio Montero at 9 a.m.. The tour ends with brunch at Restaurante Casa Baco. Tickets are 18,000 colons for the public and 15,000 for Alianza members.
The French cultural organization said that Heredia once was Villa Vieja to differentiate it from Villa Nueva, which is what San José was called. Heredia was founded 30 years earlier, it said.
Heredia Centro has a great quantity of architectural heritage, the organization said.
