La Candelaria, historic district of Bogota
It is the main attraction of Bogota, the tourist district par excellence, but which from our point of view does not usurp its reputation. Take time to visit and get lost in this historic and colonial district of Bogota. Its rather well-preserved colorful houses and its walls adorned with street art works will surprise you.
Visiting the Candelaria is a must while in Bogota, especially since it is in this district that other sites of interest are found such as Plaza Bolivar, the gold museums and that of Botero, the Monserrate, etc. Do not hesitate to enter the churches that you will find on the way, you will have beautiful surprises such as the Church of San Francisco, or NuestraSeñoraDel Carmen, a small Gothic-style church to see absolutely!
Where to Stay
La Candelaria is the preferred area of travelers, for the atmosphere and intact architecture of this historic district. It is full of hostels, small restaurants and cafes to take a break; we tell you more at the end of the article.
The sunset from up there is an incredible spectacle that should not be missed, we tell you about it in our article dedicated to Monserrate. To have lived it, we can only recommend that you live this unique experience in Bogota. This is clearly one of our bogotanos favorites!
Bogota is a city surrounded by mountains, the most famous of which is certainly the Monserrate. From the top of its 3,152 meters, the viewpoint over Bogota is spectacular.
At the top you will find the Basilica of Señor Monserrate, symbol of the city of Bogota, built following the earthquake in 1925. Up there, there are some souvenir shops and some restaurants with panoramic views.
The Monserrate Sanctuary and its white walls are visible from almost everywhere which also makes it a real landmark to navigate the city.
How To Get To Monserrate
Several ways to arrive are possible: on foot, by cable car and funicular, we tell you everything in the Practical Monserrate section of our dedicated article.
A stone’s throw from the square you will find a very small restaurant (really very small), an “institution” of the city, La Puerta Falsa. You can taste the typical dishes of the region, including Tamal, a dish cooked in a banana leaf.
