Central Post Office building - Plaza de Armas - Santiago.
Santiago has a lot of buildings of french influence, and this is one of the most beautiful (in my opinion).
Cathedral of Santiago - exterior - Plaza de Armas
Cathedral of Santiago - interior (one of the most beautiful churches I have ever seen!)
Central Market - fish market, where I had the most delicious shell fish soup!
Intendencia de Santiago - Plaza la Moneda.
This is another building of french influence architecture that lays hidden in the corner of the Republic Palace square.

Cathedral at Zipaquira, a pueblo near Bogota where we can find the Salt Cathedral. This one, however, is not made of salt: it is the colonial church built by the Spanish. It is a very old and quite simple cathedral, which is in the center of the main city's square.
Also in the main square of Zipaquira there are other government buildings, all in a mix of colonial style architecture and strong caribean colors.
At the cathedral's door I found these wood boards with pieces of paper, some scrapped, some new, where we can read the announcements of who passed away, and the services times.
Cartagena de las Indias, the pearl of Colombia! It is a beautiful picturesque city in the Caribe, with interesting buildings of spanish influence. This is the tower of the Cathedral
Church of San Pedro de Claver, at the heard of Cartagena de las Indias - Colombia
Islas del Rosario - Closest Islands to Cartagena. Beautiful beaches.
