This church is one of the oldest colonial churches in Bogota and has a very beautiful interior. As you enter you will see an amazing carved screen followed by a beautifully maintained church. The ceilings and arches are stunning. Well worth a visit.

Lovely chapel opposite Nariño's Palace. It is very quiet once you go inside and the images and decorations are traditional and old-fashioned. If you like visiting churches, you must stop by this one, and go right to the altar, where you can appreciate its ornamentation...More

The oldest church in Bogota. Colombian churches don't have the violent images and assertive gilding of, say, Mexican churches -- I'd love to know why.

The brick outside of this church isn't very impressive and it looks very run down, but inside is really worth checking out. Not as ornate as some of the other churches on the opposite side of Plaza Bolivar, this is still worth seeing.

You should definitely get inside this church if you like churches and it's close to the presidential Palace and also to the archives of Bogota who are a beautiful building made by Rogelio Salmona, one of the top architects of Bogota!

Of all the churches in Bogota, this was for me the nicest. It was one of the more natural churches, not over elaborate, with a nice altar piece and splendid ceiling. The outside brickwork also makes it an attractive building overall.

This is quite a beautiful church that is more impressive inside than out.There is a great deal of wood craving and an intricate roof.

Love to visit this little chapel next to the Palacio Nariño. Old, completely reconstructed, and done in a serious and lovely way. Absolutely adore the wooden door. Just love the atmosphere and go there every time I visit La Candelaria!
