Another feather in Bogota’s cap, the Church of San Francisco (Iglesia de San Francisco), built in the 17th century is the city’s oldest church. The interiors of this church, particularly the main altarpiece is considered to be the Bogota’s best and most elaborate art. A beautiful example of some fine architecture of that era, the ceiling is reminiscent of Mudejar borrowed from an Islamic tradition. Masses run throughout the day so it might be a little difficult to spend some leisurely time at the church.

Doesn't look like much from the outside, but please step inside. The interior is very grand with plenty of statues. Built in 1550, this Dan Franciscan church still looks great and is worth a quick visit.
Beautiful and peaceful place! Loved the service too
The north entrance of the old Santa Fe city, this church is just mystic and amazing.
Built in 1550. This church was one the first in old Santa Fe. Nice architecture.
Absolutely sublime space
