Where to go in Bogota - Churches in Bogota

Churches in Bogota



In Colombia, the Catholic faith plays a big role in the country's culture since the Spanish colonization. It is not strange to find how the main holidays and congregations revolve around saints and other religious figures.

Bogota as well as other main Colombian cities and towns developed around churches and plazas. As tradition goes, the chapel of La Candelaria situated in Chorro de Quevedo Square was one of the first churches constructed there and from then on the population expanded. During the Spanish conquest, the cultural and political center shifted to the Square on Royal Street (Calle Real), Plaza de Bolívar, today, on 7th Avenue. This church is amongst the most visited and admired churches representative of the city as it is known for its history and architecture as well as for hosting special events.

The majority of neighborhoods have their own church which locals as well as tourists can visit.  Some of the most popular churches of the city are also important reference points of Bogota, such as e Santuaries of Monserrate y Guadalupe which are not only architectural icons of the city, but also watch over the city from the western mountain range.
