More information about
San Joaquín church was built about 1880. Every rock that is part of the church was carried from Cartago by cart, 87 km away along the current national Route 225. Families of San Joaquín donated the statues that today decorate the church gardens. The Spanish painter Jose Claro—who also made paintings for a church in San Antonio de Prado, near Medellín, Colombia—painted the images inside the church. It has also a cavern with a Lourdes Virgin and armchairs made of stone to sit down and view the garden flowers.
The official San Joaquin primary school is Escuela Estados Unidos de America. Liceo Regional de Flores and Colegio Tecnico are the two public high schools located in San Joaquin.
