The parish church in Villa de Leyva is standing on the south-eastern side of Plaza Mayor, a few steps up. The church was built in 1605 and has got a plain interior. The walls are white with a few paintings hanging on them. There are brown beams in the roof and the benches are brown. But in the front there is a big altarpiece in baroque style and a smaller one in the side chapel.
During the days I visited Villa de Leyva I only saw the church open once, in the evening.
