Inside the Iglesia de la Veracruz in Medellín

Originally called the Ermita de la Veracruz de los Forasteros (the Visitor’s Hermitage of the True Cross), it was constructed in 1682 and is the only Colonial church in Medellín. Today, the church’s configuration is of stone masonry walls, and the church along with its main altar (which was brought in its entirety from Spain), was eventually completed between 1791 and 1803.
