  • Even though is not the first or the most important, the Church of the Sagrada Familia is a reference point quite important and very popular for all the inhabitants of Bucaramanga, inside find a church beautiful, unique in its style and always visited by people requiring some divine favor.

  • For the photo and that's it! It is basically a church that has beautiful photos of the façade lighting at night. On the day, is an area that may have some difficulties of security, this guarded by beggars and sick that decrease the quality of the visit. A sample of ecclesiastical architecture, but nothing more. I would not recommend it as a tourist site in the city to less than that is interested in this type of structures.

Where to stay in Bucaramanga

As a city always on the build, Bucaramanga has plenty of modern, high-rise hotels to choose from. Dotted across town in little clusters of development, hotels try to outdo each other in size and services. For something a bit more down to earth, take a look at the rental apartments in residential areas.
