Iglesia de San Francisco, Bogota

4.6
Take a tour of the oldest preserved church in the city when you visit Iglesia de San Francisco. Originally built in the latter half of the 16th century, the cathedral was dedicated to St. Francis of Assisi. Take time to admire the stunning architecture from the outside. Then move to the interior, where you'll find gold embellishments decorating the altar and its backdrop--a grand view from the pews. Statues of religious figures line the bottom of an elaborately designed ceiling within the worship room. Ask at the attraction for service times if you are interested.

  • Doesn't look like much from the outside, but please step inside. The interior is very grand with plenty of statues. Built in 1550, this Dan Franciscan church still looks great and is worth a quick visit.
  • Beautiful and peaceful place! Loved the service too
  • Built in 1550. This church was one the first in old Santa Fe. Nice architecture.
  • Absolutely sublime space
  • The north entrance of the old Santa Fe city, this church is just mystic and amazing.
