  • The Church of our Lady of Carmen in Guatape, Colombia is a Greco-Roman style church which is a few blocks from the main square of the village. The construction of the Temple took more than 70 years, built in 1865 part of his history says that the municipality has three curses hurled by a priest which is counted by the settlers. It is a beautiful church which is after the colourful streets of the village, one of the main attractions.
