Spirituality in Bogota
 
 
 
 
It is important to note that a cosmopolitan city such as Bogota is also one of the oldest cities in the world to offer freedom of worship.  Naturally, the city also offers a great variety of houses of worship. 
 
Though predominately a Catholic nation, Colombia and its capital received religious refugees from all over the world, commencing in the 1500s, during the final period of the Spanish Inquisition (in Spain) until recent years, most notably, just prior to and during World War II, which saw Jewish immigration increase from nations such as Poland, Russia, Lithuania, Rumania, Austria, Germany and France.  Photographer Erika Diettes has documented the fortunate transition from Europe to Colombia in her internationally acclaimed exhibit and book titled Silencios, which chronicles this event through the words and portraits of some of the last surviving members.  Colombia continues to open her arms to Jewish refugees as families emigrate from neighboring Venezuela. 
 
As other groups emigrated from countries such as the United States, Lebanon, Turkey, Syria, Japan, Korea, China and India (to name a few), they established centers of worship where they could honor their religious traditions.  
 
The following list highlights some of the houses of worship, or associations, where people of varied religious beliefs, or spiritual / philosophical schools of thought, gather:
