  • Small. Elegant. Quite (it’s raining when we came).
  • A very beautiful church worth a visit not too far away from the Plaza de Bolivar.
  • My church were i studied still preserved is a colonial icon and reference for next generations, the bell tower contains remains of colonial people as Antonio Nariño's wife. The organ is one of the biggest after the cathedral, was modified the air supply around 1975 for an Spanish religious very smart and intellectual. The church was one of the most important churches when Bogota could realise Catholic parades before Holly week as the Macarena procession with all bull fitters and the Holly procession of the dolorosa.

  • A small parish but a cute site
  • Great place to party, cheap beer and nice people
