  • Lower Nuestra Señora del Socorro Basilica, has a structure in pure stone. considered one of the great architectural constructions in Colombia of the 19th century, magnificent construction with sturdy walls, slender columns and the ellipsoidal choir; being admired by engineering. The Basilica Nuestra Señora del Socorro is listed as a building of carved stone in Colombia, formed by stones in Barichara-Santander and marble of Carrara (Italy). It has two European side altars in marble. Are recorded as the following commemorative inscriptions: the first, "Ad honorem evecta per Decre catedralis." Leonis XIII, martii 1895 ", which translated into English means:"Elevated to the honour of Cathedral by Decree of Leon XII, on March 20, 1895." The second, "endorsed Pax fuit tertio IDEs septembris MDCCCLXXXIV Anno Domini", which translated into English means: "the peace was signed on September 10 in the year of our Lord 1884." Excellent architectural work to visit, learn, contemplate, admire, take care and rating with its due respect.

  • One of the most beautiful churches I have ever seen. Completely built in stone and with a design that is surprising. It has stained-glass windows and sculptures in white marble. But undoubtedly the most striking are its huge columns. Nice place to visit
