(4.3/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
View the artwork of a church-turned-museum at Museo Santa Clara. This church was built in 1647 and is considered to be one of the best examples of Baroque architecture in the city from its time. Originally belonging to a female religious community, the church became a museum in 1983 and now features a collection of artwork. Inside the structure, you can appreciate the fabulous ornate art on the ceiling and look for colonial pieces by famous artists like Gaspar and Baltasar de Figueroa and Agustin Garcia Fox Useche. The church also displays mural paintings throughout the halls and contemporary art exhibits. To visit Museo Santa Clara and other attractions in Bogota, use our Bogota vacation planner.

  • Museum of Santa Clara is a former Catholic Jesuit monastery took place. Street was just look from along the entrance and inadvertently goes. The Interior is absolutely gorgeous luxury itself! Gorgeous central altar and countless religious paintings and dazzling decorations. It is a sight to see!

  • A must in this fantastic city. If you walk around the area of government buildings, do not forget to pass to the interior of this former monastery to enjoy its baroque interior in colonial style. The visit is economic and is done in no more than half an hour.
