Church · Hidden Gem · Religious Site
Admire the largest cathedral in Colombia at Catedral Primada de Bogota, the seat of the city's archbishop. A small chapel in the 16th century, the church was restored several times and was completely rebuilt in 1823, when it assumed the grandiose Neoclassical form it boasts today. Outside you can observe the picturesque facade and take postcard-like photos to take home from your trip. The relatively simple and plain interior houses the tomb of Bogota's founder, Gonzalo Jimenez de Quesada.
