File:My Landscape symbol National Theater.jpg|The construction of the National Theater began in 1891 and was inaugurated in 1897,in San José city. It was promoted by the coffee oligarchy that had political power at that time. However, a tax was imposed to all Costa Ricans to achieve its construction. The intention was to have a European-style theater that would serve as amusement place for the bourgeoisie of the time. At that time, a series of national buildings were created to build a nationalist identity based on the Europeanization of the Costa Rican people. This is why the National Theater style is german neo-clasical. There were exclusively Europeans shows, such as operas and classical music concerts. At that time, the theater was the most expensive and hierarchical building in San José and was a symbol of "culture" and development. Today this building does not stop having iconic prominence. Its use has been democratized promoting free shows and diverse cultural activities such as popular dance and Costa Rican music. However, it remains a symbol of power that many Costa Ricans with low incomes do not know inside. I think the symbolic hierarchy can be very understandable to any citizen who knows Western culture.

File:My Landscape symbols 3 Guayabo National Monument.jpg|Guayabo National Monument was an ancient indigenous city populated from 1000 before Christ to 1400 after Christ, located in Turrialba. According to the latest research the city was abandoned before the arrival of the Spaniards. It was composed of mounds, conical houses, causeways, tombs and an incredible hydraulic system. The city was strategically located in a Valley, between two rivers with a visual finish to another very important natural symbol, the Turrialba volcano. The city was buried for a long time, until several archaeologists rediscovered it. In 1973 it began with the recovery of the site that was declared, at that time, National Monument, becoming the largest archaeological site in the country. In 2009 it was declared a World Heritage Site due to the complexity of its aqueducts. In addition, nowadays a remnant of evergreen pre-montane rainforest is protected. This site is still part of the identity of the Costa Rican and although it is no longer used as a city but as a place to visit, it can help us understand how a pre-Columbian city worked in our territory. The image is taken from “the Encounter” Viewpoint that shows a mound landscape surrounded by the forest. Although today conical houses cannot be seen because of their biodegradable condition, it is possible to imagine them and go back in time to visualize the city in its splendor.
