“Best histroy summary of the city in English”
Reviewed May 11, 2012

I loved the audio tour with listening device that they have there. It very inexpensive and has it all. I recommend it highly. When you are done with this, then go to the Gold Museum right next to it in Plaza de Bolivar

“A great place to take a break from walking”
Reviewed March 2, 2012

This cathedral is located next to the Plaza de Bolivar and is a smallish but impressive cathedral, well worth a visit, and a great place to take a rest from the sun.

I was most surprised to see many male visitors with their ball caps on in a church, which I found really disrespectful, but the Columbians are so good natured that I did not see a single visitor challenged for their disrespect.

“Interesting but not a spanish jewel”
Reviewed February 17, 2012

If you go, you may as well take the audio guide. The entry fee without the guide is the same. A fairly plain church for the period with some interesting statuary. The Pedro Claver church is a bit more interesting if you have limited time.
