Better yet try to catch when there is a Mass and absorb the local sounds and customs. There is nothing exceptional and maybe that is the point. It speaks of where you are in Colombia.

This is a traditional church like those in the country. There are many masses during the weekend. Tourist from out of the country can appreciate the colonial architecture brought from Spaniards to this continent. There are beautiful stained glass windows.

The church is not one of the most impressive of those in Colombia, but that's what made it so authentic!! The town looks like it has hardly been touched for hundreds of years, and the same for the church. Everything in the town happens here,...More

Quite pretty church located in the main square in Salento. There was a service in progress when we visited adding to the atmosphere. Nothing special really but you may as well pay a visit if you're in Salento.

The very touristic but yet pretty town of Salento has a well kept town square. On the square is the rather typical town church. Although It is nothing particularly special it still is a comfortable place to visit.

This is the main building in Salento’s plaza. The church is pretty plain from the outside and is actually quite plain on the inside. I would not make the effort to visit this if I was not in the town!

This church provides a nice respite after visiting Salento, climbing up and down the town's hill - Mirador Alto de la Cruz and walking the network of Salento's vibrant streets. Rather simple inside it is inviting and friendly. It features many pretty little details inside...More

This is worth a brief stroll through the church. It has been renovated and is bright and cheerful. Interestingly, the doors appear to be always open and we were accompanied by a couple of stray dogs who seemed to adopt us.
