The realization of mural paintings in the churches of Cundinamarca-Boyacá's doctrine was a generalized activity between the end of the 16th century and the beginning of the 17th century, because besides favoring the evangelization works, it contributed to improve the ornament of the temple, contributing "decency" to its interior and "moving to devotion". Its study at a documentary level is quite complex due to the scarcity of existing data, however, a series of files of great historical and artistic value have been located, whose analysis constitutes the basis of this chapter. This documentation, unpublished, has allowed us to verify, among other questions of interest, the existence of mural paintings in places that today have disappeared or are hidden, to certify the presence of the paintings on the exterior of the buildings and not only on the interior, to provide authorship for one of the cases analyzed and to understand the scarce value that from the audience of Santa Fe was given to it, not propitiating its use.
