  • If you are visiting in Bogota is a place you have to visit, no matter if you do walk (in which case you must be prepared as it is a climb that requires good physical condition), cable car or funicular (both have a low cost), you can get to the Igilesia which is part of the elements that make up the religious tourism from the center of Bogota. The view obtained is mainly South of the capital, is a beautiful sight, which allows you to watch the sunset in a very nice way (mainly recommended in January by the cloudless sky). Back of the market square which is located in the rear of the Church is neglected, but the front is very nice, is the way of the cross represented in sculptures ranging in a path up the mountain. Security is very good.

  • The view is a plus, however the building does not have any more attractive. Worth knowing and explore the surrounding area.
