This picture was taken in Santa Clara´s Church, wich actually is a colonial art museum.
You are warned to avoid to shot pictures inside San Francisco´s Church

dark mysterious interior dating party from the late 16th century.
At the end of the nave, the guilded alter in the apse glows warm as a fireplace. a beautiful tranquil place to sit and rest after the gold museum. Be respectful, a lot of people pray here.

This ancient church has the most beautiful reredos in Bogota, and also a wonderful side chapel in honour of the Virgin, plus many other monuments. No wonder it is always full.

I really feel the church looks neglected. i was not impressed at all. I've seen nicer churches in South America.

Personally I don't understand the big fuss about iglesia de San Francisco, sure it's worth a quick visit before the gold museum but all it did was remind me of the disgusting opulence of the church. Surely the amount spent on the front altar alone could've been better spent?

I doubt you'll want to spent more than 10-15 minutes in here.
