The Church of Santo Toribio was built in the early eighteenth century and is located in the San Diego neighborhood, on one of the corners of Plaza Fernández de Madrid. His work is due to the bishop of the city Don Gregorio de Molledo and Clarque, who saw the necessity of have a temple and resumed the construction on the old foundations that had left Antonio Sanz Lozano, Archbishop of the New Kingdom of Granada, which corresponded to the main nucleus of the actual Republic of Colombia.

Restored at the end of the 19th century, this church is renowned for the beautiful ancient images it preserved during the colony and was much loved by the Carthaginian aristocracy. It is still preserved in the place, the only baroque religious part of the city, the main altarpiece.
