  • A place to see absolutely if you're in Bogota. One little move up and down in funicular or cable car to choose, and at the top there's the Church of Montserrat to visit. There is a magnificent view was 180 degrees from the city of Bogota and a small market of the products of artisans of the country. You can indulge and dining in the on-site restaurant, it's good but quite expensive.

  • Don't go on a Sunday. I waited 2 hours to get into the lift, that takes you here. But when you are there you have the most amazing view of Bogota. The old church was beautiful. go there  more »
  • To complete the ascent to Cerro Monserrate, you must visit the Basilica. Of great religious importance, it presents a sober architecture, with beautiful ornamentation inside and gold accents.

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.
