● La Candelaria: The oldest district in Bogota and original spot where Spanish conquistador Gonzalo Jiménez de Quesada founded the city in 1538. You can walk by the streets passing 400-year old churches, historical buildings and colonial museums – most with free admittance.
● The Gold Museum: With a fantastic collection of pre-Spanish and pre-Colombian gold artefacts and the Museum of Colonial Art exhibiting Colombian treasures including Viceroy-ship art, silver plates and Las Aulas Cloister, one of the oldest buildings in Bogota.
● Plaza de Bolivar: Is located in the heart of the city and contains a statue of Simón Bolívar who played a key role in Latin America's successful struggle for independence. The square is guarded by impressive buildings including the Palace of Justice, the National Capitol, and the Catedral Primada de Colombia.
● The Catedral Primada de Colombia: The Roman Catholic Cathedral was built between 1807 and 1823 and holds the remains of the founder of the city. The Cathedral is the largest in Colombia and one of the biggest in South America.
● Cerro de Monserrate: This is the main symbol of Bogota and has been visited by thousands of people and pilgrims since it was founded in 1640. You can take the funicular or transferico ride to the top or walk the stone path which should take between 1-2 hours. Seated at the peak of the hill is a beautiful sanctuary, a couple of restaurants, and fabulous views over Bogota.
