Inspirock Rating:
4.3/5 based on 1,800+ reviews on the web
Dedicated to a South American human rights pioneer whose remains still rest there today, Sanctuary of Saint Peter Claver exudes a sense of tranquility. Built between 1580 and 1654, the structure features an imposing stone facade, yet the interior glows with the rich colors filtered through its stained glass windows. After appreciating the architecture, you can visit the church's cloister, where San Pedro baptized thousands of slaves, as well as its museum, to get some historical perspective on the building. If you take a guided tour, make sure to clarify the price in advance, or you might end up paying extra for translation into English.

  • The Church is very beautiful on the outside, but we don't. She stands on a square that has two restaurants that put the table outside. We had drinks and eat two and we're good entries satisfied
