This church has numerous carvings and alters around it. Personally I felt it was a little dark and overwealming. However if you like church interiors then I can see how this would appeal. Worth a walk through if you are in the area.

Very beautiful church with amazing architecture. Quite impressive. Ideally located to a variety of other points of interest. Does not have a very obvious face on the outside, so it is a little hidden gem of sorts.

Just impressive. It is a beautiful church, where the inside of the church is decorated with dark wood in comparison to most of other churches in Bogota that have gold or white tones.

Don't pass by this beautiful colonial church because of its unassuming exterior. The interior of the 18th Century Iglesia de la Tercera Orden is breathtakingly beautiful. Photographs are not permitted inside because this is an active church. All of the altars are made of dark...More

Walking downtown on the Septimax walkway, you might pass this Church and never notice it. Look for the color scheme, to locate it, and go inside and see a church worth a visit.

..at least in my opinion. Why? Because of the wooden decor and ceiling! At least as nice as the Iglesia de San Francisco (just next to it) and the Iglesia/museo de Santa Clara (one or two blocks behind Placa de Simon Bolivar).

I went to see the wood carvings, which are nice but the extremely dark interiors made it difficult to fully appreciate them. Right across from the Museo de Oro so worth taking a quick look.

A very interesting church because of the alternating colors in the cement blocks. Other than that it is just a typical church.
