photo of the week: week 12 Santuario de las Lajas ⛪️

This incredible church is el Santuario de las Lajas (Las Lajas Sanctuary) in Ipiales, Colombia.

Ipiales is just across the border from Ecuador, and being a big fan of churches – as you will know if you follow me on Instagram – I decided to cross to Colombia by land in order to check out this church.

It is in a steep valley, a dramatic setting that adds to the sanctuary’s beauty.

I made the mistake of going on Palm Sunday so the place was packed, but nonetheless I am glad I got to visit!


Would you visit the Santuario de las Lajas?
