  • Very beautiful. Located in the main square of Socorro, every detail is admirable. Of the most beautiful churches I have visited

  • This Cathedral is very beautiful, is not very large and monumental, but has a very nice architecture, its materials give a beautiful color and its location is very special as it is on a square surrounded by many arbolé lush that give freshness to the environment.

  • Good afternoon, today with great enthusiasm came my boyfriend and I to the town of Socorro-Santander with the desire to know the Cathedral as mentioned by its beautiful architecture, which we could appreciate just from a block, since arriving at the main Park and parking we spent a very curious situation. Step to tell them to have caution, to get off the car alarm is not active and we thought it was strange, so we try to turn back on and it was not possible, we try to start the vehicle thinking were lights or something on and oh! The truck didn't. See you the chance becomes a Lord at that moment who claimed police had sent him to tell us that the vehicle was locked by Movistar antennas (actually were to the front), that he so kind Mr and we so good, informs us It can be unlocked for the modest sum of $50,000, because according to him the police arrived and took him in crane. Surprised and preoccupied with my boyfriend we proceeded to call the insurance assistance, before paying the Lord for something that we didn't know that it was happening. However, and as a good Colombian with indigenous malice I went to inquire at the park with the residents if that situation was very frequent as claimed the Lord of good heart (which wanted to help by $50,000) all vehicles passed them that much frequency, and went to investigate with street vendors and an auxiliary police which very kindly said not knowing the situation. Auxiliary very kindly offered to accompany me to the vehicle to look at passing. We arrived at the vehicle with auxiliary police and when we were checking, the mentioned Mr Nice already came with police and threat of crane, however the police officer who by the concern not to take your personal data, or took a photograph of nothing or Nobody, says us blocking theory by the antennas but that we should call a crane to remove the vehicle, asked him if it was forbidden to Park told me to not ask because the crane and I responded because but unlock the vehicle not be could move. Faced with this situation and to prevent the use of the crane and the Lord and whether it was the antenna said the cause of the blockade if they could help us push to run the vehicle one block, he mentioned to be automatic could not be, I told him "would that penalty but as knows that it is automatic?" He told me that the Lord who unlocked it knew, told her that come closer to the inside of the vehicle so that it will show was mechanical. Thank God agreed to that thing pushed contenders and not with crane ($120,000) and the half a block already truck went on. If this were true of the antennas because there is no signage to prevent that the tourist must incur these expenses. Because the Police believed both in the version of the man who unlocked the vehicle? Want to ask I just remained in distress ""Relief, ayudaaaaa"?." It is clear the vehicle was a Nissan Sentra model 2017 mechanic.
