Capilla de Santa Barbara, Barichara

4.6
The simple 18th century chapel of Capilla de Santa Barbara charms with its historical presence and humble appearance. The mainly brick construction shows some age, adding to the chapel's historical appeal. A simple cross and sculpture of an ox pulling a plough greet visitors at the entrance. Lush orange and palm trees surround the chapel, which sits at the top of a hill. The interior remains just as simple, with a few pews and a very small altar. As you exit the chapel, take in the view of the white houses and rows of terracotta-colored tile roofs that line the steep mountain road, and peer out onto the lush countryside that unfolds on the horizon.

  • Very nice little church on top of the town. Take a tick tok ride up the hill or hire a driver. Very steep hill. Beautiful place to relax and take a picture or two after you pray.  more »
  • The place is cute. A small chapel. It is very fresh inside because of the building material. It would be a beautiful place for Catholic weddings.  more »

  • It's a really nice place and church. It seems to be somewhat old and that makes it extra appealing to me. I'm the outside of the temple there is a massive tree that I find fascinating and all I can think of is that I'd love to climb it.
  • Smalle church on top of Barichara, with a superb overlook of the town. Very popular as a wedding chapel, reservations need to be made 1 year upfront ! The wedding party starts at the townsquare and makes it way up tot the romantic chapel. People from all over Colombia travel tot this unique location.
