Church of Our Lady of Chiquinquirá

 

The church of Our Lady of Chiquinquirá, built between 1863 and 1868, is located three blocks away from the main square of Santa Fe de Antioquia, in the space where the chapel of the Martyrs, dating from 1650, once stood. Built in a neoclassical and baroque style, this temple used to be cemetery and house a prison for clerics.
