Our capital convinces above all by its diversity. In addition to the various districts, the surroundings of Bogotá also have a lot to offer.
One of the probably most beautiful corners is the old town, La Candelaria. It is not only street art that increasingly distinguishes it, but also its special architecture. Only a few minutes walk away is the Plaza Bolívar, probably the most important square in Colombia. It is framed by the Capitol, the Palace of Justice, the Town Hall and the Cathedral. From there you can reach in a few minutes two of the famous museums, the museum of the artist Fernando Botero and the world famous gold museum. The exhibits come from pre-Columbian cultures, whose myths, like those of the Eldorado, will encounter you again and again on your journey.
All of this can also be admired from above. On the mountain Monserrate you are about 3000 meters closer to the sky and can enjoy the view if the weather is good. You will be amazed by how far the city stretches until the last houses are blurring in the horizon.
Despite its size, Bogotá is surrounded by a lot of green. The location on the central mountain range of the Andes determines the landscape and vegetation around Bogotá. During an excursion you can hike through the typical moorland landscape. Popular excursion destinations in the surroundings of Bogotá are for example the lake of Guatavita or the salt cathedral of Zipaquirá.
