Parroquia San Bartolomé Apóstol (Barva)

The Parroquia San Bartolomé Apóstol (Parish of Saint Bartholomew the Apostle), is a church in Barva, Heredia, Costa Rica. The first church was established between 1568 and 1575, and dedicated to Saint Bartholomew; it is rumored to have been built on an indigenous burial ground.

In 1613 a more permanent Franciscan mission and convent was established to convert the native Cot, Quircot, and Tobosí people; at this time, the church was rededicated to the Assumption of the Virgin, to remain its patron until 1888.
