This church is the best example of the eighteenth century decoration because it was the precursor of the rococo motifs. Its construction was started in 1761 and finished approximately between 1774 and 1780, according to the experts. The great value of this temple lies in its rococo decorative work in the altars, altarpieces, pulpits and confessional booths, which were created by carver Pablo Caballero.

This wood carving works represent the most important set of this art form in the city. The carving works comprise a rich iconography of leaves, flowers, fruits, small angel faces and stylized animal figures, and sepia is the most prevalent color. Along with the San Francisco and La Veracruz churches, which are at a walking distance from each other, these three churches are Bogotá’s most important set of religious architecture.
