Grecia is a countryside pueblo with many small private farms located 22 kilometers northwest of Alajuela. Most notably, Grecia is known for the red roofed Catholic Church in the town center which was for the most part packaged and shipped in from Belgium in the latter end of the 19th century. It is also known as the Cleanest little town in Central America, due to an award given a few years back. This award can actually be viewed at the Casa de Cultura, which is a small museum that has stored information and Spanish Colonial artifacts from the area over the last couple hundred years.
