Lourdes is an architectural marvel in Bogota. The sheer beauty and grandeur of this church are marvelous. It's a testament to timeless design and craftsmanship that continues to captivate all who visit. If you're in Bogota, a visit to Lourdes is an absolute must!

One of the most beautiful churches, and one of the most amazing examples of Gothic construction in Bogota.

This Catholic basilica is in Chapinero, a town in the north part of the greater Bogota area. Completed in 1904 the Neogothic-Moorish style church dedicated to 'Our Lady of Lourdes' plays a pivotal role in the archdiocese of Bogota, due to its size and -by local standards- splendor. Compared to other churches in the Candelaria area it is light inside and has plain surfaces. The many pointed arches and stained glass windows give it a special atmosphere. The chapel with the Lady of Lourdes is behind the main altar, where at the moment is an elaborate Nativity scene.

Beautiful, gothic, peaceful place to reflect. Probably my favorite cathedral or church in all of bogota. Definitely pay a visit if you’re in the city. Eyes open outside, as this isn’t really a tourist hotspot.

This Catholic basilica in the Gothic-Moorish style is open to the public during the week and on Sundays. There are a few minutes in between services when you can go inside and admire and take pictures of the works of art. Or, feel free to attend a Catholic Mass service on Sunday, but be respectful during services and refrain from taking photos. Although there is no admission, it's a good idea to give a donation either when the basket is passed during Mass, or in a collection box during other times. The transepts (the "arms" of the cross of the basilica's architectural plan) host small prayer chapels. Along the side walls of the nave (the main worship area) are the stations of the cross. If viewing them, be sure to look up at the elegantly decorated groin vaults that form the ceiling of this area. The apse of the basilica (the "head" of the cross--behind the altar) houses a larger than life statue of Our Lady of Lourdes in a separate prayer chapel that is accessible only by a small set of stairs. If you would like to take stunning photos of this basilica outside, then plan on going in the late afternoon hours of a sunny day. The setting sun will reward you with images of a golden basilica against the backdrop of the mountain range to the east of the city. If you go any later than about an hour before sunset, the surrounding buildings to the west will cast disappointing shadows on the basilica. Do be sure to leave enough time to sit on one of the park benches in the shady north side of the church, where you can gaze on a statue of Our Lady of Lourdes poised among a tidy flower garden. If you like architecture or appreciate beautiful religious statues, then be sure to add this to your itinerary while staying in Bogotá.

The basilica has a busy Mass schedule:

Monday through Saturday: 07:30 a.m.; 08:30 a.m.; 10:30 a.m.; 11:30 a.m.; 05:30 p.m.; 06:30 p.m.

Monday: 12:00 midnight

Sundays: 07:30 a.m.; 08:30 a.m.; 09:30 a.m.; 10:30 a.m.; 11:30 a.m.; 12:30 p.m.; 01:30 p.m.; 03:30 p.m.; 04:30 p.m.; 05:30 p.m.; 06:30 p.m.; 07:30 p.m.

Nice church, nothing over the top. Good place to be able to locate to meet up with friends and walk around the town.

We came across this church on a Sunday walking through town and there was a market going on out front. It is a beautiful building, and the market was quite fancy as well.

The interiors and the chandeliers are gorgeous. It is very popular on Sundays as they offer many services throughout the day.
However, I recommend visiting this church during the day, because the area might be a bit dangerous at night.

This gothic style church is a short walk from Plaza Bolivar, but just off the main tourist trek. It's architecture is unique for Bogota and the interior is equally unusual. The stained glass is quite modern and new, but impressive nontheless.
