Gotic Florentin style Temple build in the 1930,in the ruins of a convent Situated in Bogota historic Colonial district La Candelaria, is a must visit, the contrast from colonial colorful homes and this magnificent Temple, you can not miss it , inside is absolutely beatiful.

Something about this church made me smile. The exuberant striping on the outside, the floral motifs inside bespoke a religious experience that's about joy, not suffering. Went back a second time just for the vibe.

This church is a few blocks away from Plaza de Bolivar and offers a unique sight in the city centre, with distinct architectural features both from the outside and the inside. It is worth a visit.

We wandered in while walking around the area not far from Plaza Bolivar. We were intrigued by the design and colour on the outside. Equally interesting on the inside. Interesting history here too. Worth the stop.

I went there a few times, not just on a Sunday, so maybe it depends on the season.
