Sat in front of a fan and listened to the short audio guide about the history of the church. Entertaining enough with pirates and sound effects. The church itself isn't the prettiest I have seen but it was a great, peaceful break before heading back out into the streets. Located close to other museums so a lot of hawkers are around.

The Cathedral was closed both times we attempted to see it. Unfortunately by coincidence we visited the city during the weekend of the Feast of the Independence and many sights were closed. It was a big disappointment.

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 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

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.
