Pilgrims and nature lovers go up and down on a cobbled path, looking for peace and a light that illuminates their path, relieves their pain and gives them answers to their deepest concerns.

Without breaking the harmony of nature or disturbing the landscape, the cable car and the Funicular facilitate the access to thousands of people who wish to reach the top of the hill, and visit the beautiful sanctuary that presides over and guards both the capital city and the green savannah.

In the background of the temple, in a special chamber, you will find the beautiful and venerable image of the “Holy Christ Fallen to the Lashings and Nailed to the Cross”, silently presiding over the gigantic and constant pilgrimage of his devotees.


The foundation of Santafé in 1538 did not end the muisca people’s belief of worship in some parts of the mountains and to continue using the paths that led to them.

The Basilica

After the temple of Monserrate was consecrated to the Passion of Christ, the Cardinal Crisanto Duque, observed that day by day the devotion to the Fallen Lord among the capital parish would increase.


Men have done it since the beginning of history. Walking together, with their family, side by side with friends and relatives, to a privileged place by the presence of the Lord…

Stations of the Cross

Between the upper station of the funicular and the atrium of the Sanctuary of Monserrate, there is at least 200 meters away, in this space, corrugated and uneven that has a slight slope…

Bogota’s symbol

If your destination is Bogota, when you arrive — either by land or by air — you will see a mountain range crowned in one of its Hills by a Basilica that has become the symbol of the Colombian capital: Monserrate. This was narrated in a passage written by cartographer and geographer Francisco Javier Vergara y Velasco in 1901.

The Lord of Monserrate

The fallen Lord of Monserrate and the place where he is located, encloses many mysteries and focuses on the beliefs, rites, and miracles that many people attribute to him. Among these stories are to quell droughts, avoid , earthquakes, calm violence, bless the bride and groom, and heal the sick among many others.
The fallen lord of Monserrate over time became the patron saint of the Bogotanos who day by day go up in different means of transportation. Seeking peace and harmony to all their problems and above all begging devoutly or giving thanks for the favors received.

The Sanctuary of Monserrate is a place for prayer. Share your intentions
