Primary Cathedral of Bogotá

Local nameCatedral Primada de Bogotá
LocationBogotá, Colombia

The Metropolitan Cathedral Basilica Primate of Colombia, officially the Metropolitan Cathedral Basilica of the Immaculate Conception, is a Roman Catholic cathedral located at the eastern side of Bolívar Square in Bogotá, D.C., Colombia. It is seat of the Archbishop of Bogotá, Cardinal Mon. Ruben Salazar Gomez.

The Cathedral was built four-times in the same place. The first construction took place between 1556-1565 to replace the original thatched chapel, but due to poor foundation it later collapsed. The second construction took place around in 1572, yet the earthquake of 1785 reduced it to ruins. The fourth and final construction occurred between 1807 and 1823.
