First of its kind in Bogotá, construction on this neo-Gothic church began in 1875. Its monumental architecture and stained-glass windows designed by German artist Walter Wolf Wasserhouen make it one of the most representative symbols of the city. It was declared a minor basilica by the Vatican in 2015.
