  • It is a place that contains relevant literature, but also has digital and film library. On the other hand its facilities allow meetings at family, partner or friends to have fun times

  • A good place to have a different time, the spaces are spacious and perfect apra study or simply to relax. Its terraces and gardens are great to read a book, enjoy the atmosphere or simply rest a while from the bustle of the city.

  • A Great library, lovely children space to read and play, very good opportunities to share in family! And also have a simple but good enough restaurant Nd coffee in case you wanted
  • Really beautiful structure with great views. Too bad the guards say photography is not permitted. The Policía Nacional lets me take photos of the president's residence but I can't take pictures of the library? Give me a break.
  • The best architecture in this side of the city. This library has been part of the huge group of public libraries.
  • It's an amazing place to visit. No doubt it's one of the places that everybody have to visit if you want to know something about culture in Bogota
  • Beautiful building and peaceful environment. Love this kind of spacious architecture. Visiting Biblioteca Virgilio Barco in combination with Jardin Botanico is a very nice half-day spending. Just do it
