    Our first stop will be a chapel built in 1746 with bricks and stone, has a beautiful facade and a bell tower with colonial details, It is known for its history of being a place of prayer for the sick and needy since the seventeenth century by a group of religious people. Currently, it receives visits from parishioners in search of miracles for its patron saint.

    We will continue our route to a former convent of Capuchin nuns built in the eighteenth century in baroque style that combines elements of colonial and European architecture, it has a beautiful central courtyard where nature is the main attraction, in addition to some symbols. During the colonization period, it was an important center of teaching and religious formation for the community.

    Next we’ll go on walking this time to visit the first church of our journey, this is considered one of the oldest in Santa Marta, its construction is from the eighteenth century, besides being an outstanding example of colonial architecture and some details of neoclassical style. This temple was demolished on several occasions by earthquakes, pirate raiders who burned it and it was even a women's prison. However, in the face of these adversities it continues to stand and was a center of religious teaching and evangelization for the community.

    Soon we’ll visit the main church, considered the oldest in Latin America, is the most important religious monument of the city, its construction in neoclassical style began in 1756 and it had several restorations by the civil wars. Here are the remains of important personalities of the country, besides having stained glass windows and paintings of Spanish royalty.
    This religious center has been the home of many bishops and a favorite place to consolidate love between lovers today, it also has a variety of saints and virgins that accompany us in every liturgy, to walk through its wide spaces will be to connect with spirituality.

    As a penultimate stop we will visit the house of the bishops of Santa Marta, formerly a small chapel built in the sixteenth century, the residence was expanded and improved to become the impressive building it is today. It is an example of Spanish colonial architecture, its facade is made of coral stone and has balconies and windows with wrought iron railings. The place has been restored and preserved over the years, and is considered a historical and cultural treasure of the city.

    Continuing the route we will return to Casa Marina where we will enjoy a special surprise of the city's religious customs.
