Owner description: Located in Bolivar Square, this is the largest cathedral in Colombia and one of the largest in South America. It's a magnificent example of neoclassical architecture and is filled with colonial paintings and ornate decorations.

This is a old beautiful church. It is worth a visit but I have seen better. There are a few other churches in the area that just as more beautiful then this one .

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.

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

It's ok if you like visit churches... I find it boring.

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.
