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.
