  • The Church of the candelaria is is in the center of the city of Bogota precisely in the area of the same name in honor to the Virgin of the candelaria. Is a church small but with value historical for the Colombian. Many of the decorations that time inside are golden. The photos are prohibited due to the old church. Take them fast.

  • the Church is not of the most beautiful, but it's an important tour of the importance of faith for Catholics and for importance as architectural heritage and history of the city.

  • 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.
