Chapel of the Tabernacle (Capilla del sagrario)

A luxurious chapel.

To begin with, your view will be drawn to the left, attracted by the Primary Cathedral (Catedral Primada). However, you can't go to the Plaza Bolivar without going into this chapel. Because it is attached to the church, people often think that it is part of it. But the Chapel of the Tabernacle is a separate building that has at least equal historical and cultural importance. Although it has been renovated several times, the temple has been here since 1700. Since then, it has been a compulsory pilgrimage site for many religious folk. This is especially obvious during Holy Week (Semana Santa). As well as admiring the façade, which will hold any fan of baroque architecture enthralled for a long while, going in is vital. Inside you will find a large exhibition of paintings by Gregorio Vasquez de Arce y Ceballos, the most iconic painter of the colonial era from the 17th century.
