Iglesia del Carmen

We are usually intrigued to hear travelers miss a visit to Santuario Nuestra Señora del Carmen, the official name of this beautiful and gothic church. Conveniently located in La Candelaria’s city center, the religious temple is not as old as you might expect, built in early 20th Century. It combines the gothic Florentine architecture with Arabic and Byzantine touches, making its interior quite unique and probably unlike any you have ever seen. Attention: there are many different churches with Carmen on their names in Bogota, so make sure you check the correct address.

Carrera 5 n.8-36, La Candelaria, Bogota.
