    Iglesia del carmen - looks like a wedding cake!

    We were walking in La Candelaria, Bogota and I noticed this wonderful church and took pictures. I find out later that this is one of the younger churches of Bogota – the Iglesia del Carmen which was inaugurated recently in 1938. I have read that it resembles a wedding cake, and yes, it does. Inside, it also has amazing stained-glass windows and there is a mosaic of the Virgen del Carmen – an image venerated by drivers on the Colombian public transport.

    Iglesia del Carmen, having been completed in 1938, is the most recently constructed church in La Candelaria. It is also probably one of the most colourfully decorated buildings in the capital
