Admire the largest cathedral in Colombia at Catedral Primada de Bogota, the seat of the city's archbishop. A small chapel in the 16th century, the church was restored several times and was completely rebuilt in 1823, when it assumed the grandiose Neoclassical form it boasts today. Outside you can observe the picturesque facade and take postcard-like photos to take home from your trip. The relatively simple and plain interior houses the tomb of Bogota's founder, Gonzalo Jimenez de Quesada.

  • Just walking around the city center with its impressive buldings is an architectural treat. The night life is great as well as the Food, Wine and entertainment.

  • Beautiful cathedral in the heart of Bogota. The Plaza surrounding the cathedral is very busy with a variety of vendors but inside the cathedral is quiet as it should be. It is very light and open here and the natural light makes it more welcoming in my opinion.
  • It is without any doubt the most important church of Colombia, and there are no enough words to describe its magnitude. When you go inside you are immediately left spechless by how big and beautiful this church is, it is a must visit place full of history, art, and the architecture will make you feel you traveled in time to colonial times. Definetely recommended visit.
