  • Beautiful church dedicated to our Lady of Candelaria. It was built between the 17th and 18th centuries by the order of the Augustinian recollects and restored recently. The facade is simple, painted in yellow. Inside, the beautiful golden altarpiece draws attention on the altar. Worth the visit!

  • This church is beautiful, full of paintings and colonial art, was restored recently and really looks and feels like an architectural, historical and cultural heritage of this city. In my humble opinion, although smaller, is pretty much more of the same Cathedral Primada de Bogotá

  • Great place to party, cheap beer and nice people
  • Candelaria church (La Candelaria Church, Calle11). 1686-on a slant in the Church was built between 1703 and went up a little from the Bolivar square. From being at the intersection in a beautiful Baroque building, this church is noticeable right away.
