Highlights of Bogota

Bogota

Bogota

Bogota is a sprawling city of the Andes in Colombia 2640 metres (8660 feet) above sea-level. That is the 3rd highest capital in South America after Quito in Ecuador and La Paz in Bolivia. Moreover it was also named Santa Fe de Bogota between 1991 and 2000, but thankfully nowadays they drop the Santa Fe.

This Colombian capital  has struggled from a poor image of being a dangerous city. Fortunately through a system of community watches “Comunidad Segura” implemented since 1995, it is much much safer than it used to be. Indeed it is now a bit of a party town with many clubs and bars for all tastes.

Notably one of the most famous museums is Museo Del Oro (Gold Museum). Housing collections from the pre-Hispanic era, it is a must see. It dates back to 1939 and is a testimony to Colombia’s rise in the gold art sector. The exhibition was completely renovated in 2008.

Colombia also boasts the painter and sculptor Fernando Botero whose figures tend to be in large proportions. Not only the men but especially the women. Visit Museo Botero del Banco de la Republica to visit works of his art. So famous are his distinctive sculptures that you may bump into one in other parts of the world, for example outside Barajas airport in Madrid.

The Spanish have also left their imprint. Apart from their language check out the architecture in Barrio La Candelaria. Albeit other attractions include Plaza de Bolivar and Museo de la Independencia Casa del Florero. In addition there is Capitolio Nacional.

A trip to Bogota would not be complete without visiting one of its markets. For this try Plaza de Mercado de Paloquemao for its local produce. The flower market is also spectacular. Additionally you have flea markets. Such as Mercado de las Pulgas de Usaquen and Mercado de las Pulgas de San Alejo. However if it is crafts that you are after, then do not give Pasaje Rivas a miss.
