  • Beautiful and imposing Cathedral, around the Plaza de Bolivar, in Tunja, Capital of Boyacá, there can come to thank God for all his goodness.

  • The visit to the Cathedral and Basilica of Tunja is an experience beautiful for who love not only her faith, but the architecture and the art. See the imposing Sagrario, the detail of the doors, its columns... incredible. Recommended to photograph.

  • Colombia's oldest Cathedral (consecrated in 1574!), survived several earthquakes (including the 1928!) and remained intact with all its magnificence both external (isabelline Gothic style) as the intern, with emphasis on the main altar. The Tower of belfry is later 17th century with modifications in the 20th century. Is the religious heart of the city and feel in all its intensity the religiosity of the Colombians. Magnificent!

  • Its construction was entrusted to the master Pedro Gutièrrez, by Juan de Castellanos and founder of Tunja, Captain Gonzalo Suárez Rondon, and be home in 1567. It is located opposite the Plaza de Bolívar and within the historical center of Tunja, which was declared a national monument. In its interior you can see paintings by Gregorio Vàsquez de Arce y Ceballos, there also lie the remains of Gonzalo Suàrez Rondòn.
