Church of San Francisco

History of the Church of San Francisco



This Church was home to many changes over the past centuries. The Franciscans had left the city in 1821, but then returned 25 years later, in 1946 at the request of the bishop of the diocese. Then after a fire on 29 June 1962, it took more than a year to start the construction of the new church, but it was not until 1964 that the temple could be opened solemnly.

The current parish office of the convent was later remodeled in June 1997 to be completed and solemnly blessed on June 6, 1998, after this it hasn´t undergone many changes other than the church´s plaza, which was remodeled thanks to the plan to remodel the Historic Downtown.

San Francisco´s Church Today

Today the Church is directed by Father Jesus Maria Peña Granados who is in charge of guiding the spiritual lives of many people in Santa Marta.
