Owner description: Located in Bolivar Square, this is the largest cathedral in Colombia and one of the largest in South America. It's a magnificent example of neoclassical architecture and is filled with colonial paintings and ornate decorations.

Not a whole lot to do but it is a must see historical stop. This is my second trip here and I always came across large crowds and events here. Do take care of your belongings and try to note the nearest police just in case. I never had issues in Colombia but it is a hot spot like so many places.

The Roman Catholic cathedral is located at the Bolívar Square, next to Sacred Chapel and Archiepiscopal Palace . It is seat of the Archbishop of Bogotá and is the biggest in Colombia. You can't miss a visit to it.

This is a beautiful Cathedral to the likes of St Patricks in New York or Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris. This cathedral is filled with history and a place that Pope Francis visited in 2017. A place of reverence and worship.

This is a big cathedral right in the centre of Bogota. It is rather big and has some interesting details inside woth looking at. It is also nice to sit just outside and watch people.

You can't really miss this cathedral on the west side of Plaza de Bolivar. The cathedral is quite squat and solid, and has a fine backdrop in Mount Monserrate. Do have a look inside, it is quite classically decorated, make sure you lift your eyes and have a look at the paintings of the pendentives, beneath the dome, and spot the three dimensional leg coming out of the painting.
