Sarchi, the traditional home of Cost Rica craftsmanship will become a multicolored town, because of its streets will be decorated with several designs and arrangements related to the typical oxcarts, one of the most beautiful Costa Rica attractions.
The oxcart is one of the finest samples of Costa Rica culture and art. Sarchi is known as the home of decorated wooden oxcarts, the internationally recognized symbol of Costa Rica. The carts once dominated the rural landscape. Today they are rarely seen in use. They are a common decorative items and the favorite handicrafts for visitors to buy.
The idea is to decorate one of the main streets of Sarchi, specifically the one that coming from Naranjo, and reaches the town of Greece. The project will give a new face to the town, which is one of the favorite destinies for Costa Rica tourism, included in many travel packages to Costa Rica by tourist agencies.
Sarchi in the heart of Costa Rica is the name of the campaign, created by some local artists from the area of Valverde Vega, to emphasize the importance of Sarchi for Costa Rican popular tradition and craftsmanship. Of course, the colorful town will be a great option to visit for people who always look for interesting activities in Costa Rica.
To achieve the objective artists will paint walls, garbage cans, houses and bridges on the way. "We want to paint all Sarchi. Because of the crisis many local business closed its doors, but we want to think about work and a plus to make the area more cheerful" said Ramon Rodriguez, member of the project, to local media.
The organizers think that the idea will gradually bring on good results. They also expect to end the work in a few months. "We see Sarchi as the most picturesque town of Costa Rica, Latin America and the world, so we want people to identify with this activity," said Rodriguez.
Besides the refreshing image change that visitors will find at Sarchi, the Mueble Arte 2011-2012 Fair started with attractive discounts for furniture and craftsman shoppers. The event will extend two months, since this week until January 31, 2012.
