Experience Bogota

Visit Bogota and discover an attractive, vibrant city abuzz with great coffee shops, culinary hotspots, a wealth of heritage and cultural high points, and colorful neighborhoods. Colombia has the world’s largest number of orchids, its national flower. In Bogota’s mountains, you will find a diversity of these orchids, as well as a wealth of species of flowers, birds, and butterflies. Below are some suggestions and highlights of Bogota for you to explore:

El Carmen Church (Iglesia Nuestra Señora del Carmen): You’ll easily spot the iconic 187-foot, red-and-white brick steeple in the Candelaria district. Decorated with Arabic and Byzantine art, this Gothic-style church was built between 1926 and 1938 with architecture that reflects the Spanish colonial tradition. See other churches in Candelaria here.

Plaza de Bolivar: A visit to Bogota often begins here, in the heart of the original town. In this square is the city’s first public monument, the 1846 bronze statue of Simon Bolivar, known as El Libertador.

La Catedral Primida: Gothic-style with a French influence, the Holy Cathedral Church has five naves, 88 columns, and 72 vaults. 

The Gold Museum (Museo del Oro), in the cobblestoned La Candelaria, houses the largest collection of pre-Colombian gold work in the world. Among the 55,000 pieces of ancient works by indigenous cultures of Colombia, you’ll see gold, pottery, rock, precious stones, and textiles, lending scientists and archaeologists insight into the cultures of South America civilizations prior to the arrival of Europeans.

Visit La Candelaria in daylight hours. You’ll find this the place to experience Bogota’s colorful, cultural heritage, as the neighborhood is full of art deco, Spanish colonial, and Baroque architecture. La Carrera Septima is a good beginning for wandering your way to La Candelaria.

Take in panoramic views of the city and faraway hills atop Monserrate Mountain, a 10,341-foot mountain with a 17th-century church, gardens, and a Colombian spiritual shrine. Ascend to the mountain by cable car, railway, or on foot. The cable car views are preferred by most visitors. On the mountain, you will also find a couple of restaurants and a market.
