    After climbing the hill with cable car and on foot, it is worth visiting this church, which is simple but cozy and where you have a wonderful view of Bogota.

    If you are on tourism in Bogotá, you have to go up to the sanctuary of Monserrate. The view is beautiful, the cleanup of the site is impeccable, you can eat at any of the sites that there is, know the Church is a must and you will enjoy a beautiful day!

Where to stay in Bogota

Many visitors to Bogota stay in La Candelaria, a colonial-era neighborhood in the city center where you can find plenty of decent hostels and mingle with tourists from around the globe. Staying in this area also puts you within walking distance of the city's major museums and best nightlife options. If you prefer to sleep in a quieter area and visit this busy district during the day, consider accommodations in the northern section of the city, which includes the upscale neighborhood Zona T.
