If you happen to be at Villa de Leyva, you cannot and should not miss the plaza. Small town, shops and great food. Get some empanadas and walk the plaza and enjoy the history of this place.

What impressed me about this lovely church is its peacefulness. Do often churches are packed full of images statues icons ...too crowded buy far. This has white walls with few ornaments and images. This makes it lighter and highlights the glory of the got behind the alter, which would otherwise have been lost.

Very interesting insight into how the slaves were bludgeoned into Christianity from the various frescoes. Nice quiet place for reflection as to how the local people were treated.

Interesting! This is the main church in Villa de Leyva. The town is actually quite beautiful. The church is relatively simple. It has the burial site of Ms. Antonio Nariño is one of the walls. It is a short visit unless you attend the service. There is no entrance fee. It is one of the places that you should visit to give you an idea on the historical aspects of this lovely town.

Located in the largest cobblestone square in South America, this humble Church take us back to Colonial Times! Nothing fancy, can't compared it w/ European Cathedrals, but this modest and rustic building with the mountains as a backdrop creates a welcoming environment!

This place is located on a 3-4 hours bus drive from Bogota. The view of the church with the mountains on the background is breathtaking. The village is very small, you've seen everything in 2 hours. So come here to relax, not to visit a lot of things.

One of the colonial styled buildings on Plaza Mayor. Nice architecture but simple furnishing inside the church. Nothing special.

In a prominent position at the top of the piazza, the church blends in with the neighbouring buildings in the piazza. By central and south American standards, the interior is relatively simple and restrained. A welcome change from some of the more overwhelming interiors elsewhere.

Not much to see and do unless you go to a church service. Snap your selfie, check out the inside front of the church, then move on.

While this church is situated on a great plaza (Plaza Mayor), the church itself is extremely plain. Quite boring actually. You can take a peak inside, but you won't find much.
