“It's not the best in south America but worthy to visit”
Reviewed 13 January 2013

Bogotá's Cathedral seem impressive in the square it is located. It's worthy to visit. A very simple decoration but elegant in a beautiful neighbourhood makes this cathedral a nice place to go.

“Magnificent”
Reviewed 28 June 2012

As with all cathedrals we are always over whelmed by the size & opulence of what is within. We were not disappointed. Particularly was the silver in one of the chapels. That said, more impressive was the Capilla de Sagrario which is just next door. Two great visits within steps of each otjher

“Historical must”
Reviewed 12 February 2012

This is one of those churches worth visiting, since it holds a lot of Bogota's history and perhaps, from Colombia as well. I'm not a regular visitor of churches, but this site is actually worth seeing.
