Sanctuary of the Lord of the Rock – Sopó Cundinamarca Travel Guide

Municipality: Zipaquira
Department: Cundinamarca
Country: Republic of Colombia – South America

On December 3, 1753, a washerwoman named Rosa Nieto discovered a stone, apparently stamped with an image of the Lord, lying in the water. Nieto took the rock home, and that night noticed that the stone still shone like it had in the water. The following day she took it to the parish priest. In 1953, the current church was built, under the direction of an architect named Alfredo Rodriguez, to venerate the miraculous stone, which is now set in a silver cross that sits on the main altar. In the years that followed, the sanctuary has become one of the most important pilgrimage sites in central Colombia, with hundreds of people showing up every Sunday from Bogota and nearby towns.

Divino Salvador de Sopó Church – Sopó Cundinamarca Travel Guide

Municipality: Zipaquira
Department: Cundinamarca
Country: Republic of Colombia – South America

This parish church, founded by Dominicans in about 1612, is famed for its somewhat mysterious collection of oil paintings called Los Arcángeles de Sopó (Archangels of Sopó). No one knows the name of the artist of this series of 12 works, or how it got here. In a church inventory dated 1673, the Arcángeles were not yet in the church; estimates suggest they were created sometime between 1675 and 1700.
