Bogotá is Colombia’s massive, high-altitude capital. The city is home to about 9 million people, along with amazing museums, architecture, restaurants, and an astounding mountainous backdrop.
La Candelaria, the city’s historic, “cobblestoned center, features colonial-era landmarks like the neoclassical performance hall Teatro Colón and the 17th-century Iglesia de San Francisco. It’s also home to popular museums including the Museo Botero, showcasing Fernando Botero’s art, and the Museo del Oro, displaying pre-Columbian gold pieces.”
In La Candelaria and elsewhere throughout the city you can see many fantastic graffiti murals and other smaller street art pieces. Want a break from the manmade world?
