  • Marvellous church
  • The place is extraordinary, unique church, not even Bogota meet so beautiful. It has three aisled, richly decorated. But what is astonishing is that the artists are not only Spaniards, in this chíes you see a close collaboration with the natives. An example? The Angels have indigenous features, the fruit that is represented are pineapple and plane trees, which represented for the natives The Sun and the moon. The altarful of the Chapel of the Blessed Sacrament is touching. The photos I have published are of very ruined frescoes of a universal judgement, it is one of the first examples of frescoes in Colombia
