We loved the detail of the woodwork in this church. The ceilings and the columns were beautifully carved. Worth a quick stop if you are walking around the town.

Church is near the main square in the colorful city of Guatape. Free to enter. Photos permitted. See two posted photos for ornate wooden interior. Not a must-see but interesting to view as you are ambling through the town to see its attractions.
