Iglesia de San Francisco, Popayan
(4.4/5 based on 45+ reviews on the web)
The Late Baroque Neogranadino style of Iglesia de San Francisco makes it among the most important religious sites in Colombia. As you examine the exterior, look for the carved stone images of the Virgin Mary's Immaculate Conception. The bell tower features one of the largest gold and bronze bells in the Americas. Go inside to see a large central nave with two aisles; don't miss the pulpit, where white walls flank a tall golden altar stretching to the ceiling. The church still holds regular services.
