This church is very dark inside, it is also impressive made and seemed to be very old. Is also situated in Carrera 7 which is a crowded street.

There are two churches next to each other on the Parque Santander and the Tercera Orden is the more impressive, but both are equally worth checking out. The Tercera has the more ornate interior, with a very impressive altar and decor, but there are many...More
