Built after a turbulent time when the city of Barranquilla was hit by cholera epidemic, the townspeople gathered an image of San Roque and prayed for the end of the epidemic. Finally when it ended a church was built on the place to honour the saint in 1881. The church has a very Gothic Florentine to it and has a lot of relics inside. It’s one of the favourite places in the city for congregation of Catholics.

The church of San Roque in Barranquilla is a church under the invocation of San Roque de Montpellier and is built in a neogothic style. The construction of this church began in 1853 and lasted over 5 years.
