The architecture and detailing inside this place is awesome, it is well signed in Spanish and there are screens with an English explanation. The contemporary installation was well worth seeing and thought provoking.

Absolutely breathtaking. I've never seen a church so gorgeous! It's a small one but what an amazing one. It's no longer a functioning church but they've preseved it so people can come and admire the interiors. Fantastic.

You should go here no matter what. Short tour but worthwhile, once you are in you'll realize that there's more to La Candelaria than you imagine

Charming museum giving an idea of the life of a Poor Clair nun. Nice collection of art work. Look upwards at the ceiling - beautiful (but marred by a smoke detector!)

I had heard of this church's beauty, but my breath was taken away on entering. Every square inch is covered with decorative painting. In addition, there is an art piece--an installation currently on display there that, although being contemporary, really feels authentic to the experience...More

This is one of the earliest churches in Bogota and it's just beautiful. Now made into a museum, and the new art displayed was interesting too, and didn't interfere with the church ambiance.

If you can only do one thing and one thing only in Bogota, make it a visit to the Santa Clara church museum. Although there is an entrance fee - the only church in the city that charges - it's worth every penny. You may...More

An incredible museum - the paintings on the ceiling and the walls are breathtaking. It's well preserved and user friendly, we can read about the exhibits by using the touching screen showing detailed information in English. A must visit in Bogota.
