GENERAL INFORMATIONS: Religion

Religion

The main religion in Costa Rica is Roman Catholic. It`s professed by 94 % of population. The majority of Afro-Caribbean people in Limon province are Protestant. The notes about observance and protection of other religious are put in the constitution and are proved in the reality.

On every year, in Costa Rica take place a few pilgrims, from which the most important are: the pilgrim to La Negrita in Cathedral Metropolitana in Cartago (August 2nd, a day of revelation for mulatto girl Juana Pereira) and on March 16th, a pilgrim from Paraiso to Ujarras (Cartago province) that celebrates the saving of town by Virgin against the attack of pirates in 1666.
