Iglesia de San Francisco, Bogota
(4.6/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
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. Use our Bogota trip itinerary builder to add Iglesia de San Francisco and other attractions to your Bogota vacation plans.

  • Very old church with lots of gold and fantastic wood flooring we ceilings. A work of art. A lot of history. It's worth a visit. Lies in the historic centre. On the outside is a simple building.

  • 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.
  • The north entrance of the old Santa Fe city, this church is just mystic and amazing.
  • It's a rare and beautiful church.
  • Historic landmark artistic and religious

  • San Francisco church is a church built between 1661 from 1557. Unfortunately the inside has been prohibited. Affected by earthquake in 1785, which was rebuilt after a popular tourist spot. Church of St. Lou is white and beautiful.
