    Walking downtown on the Septimax walkway, you might pass this Church and never notice it. Look for the color scheme, to locate it, and go inside and see a church worth a visit.  more »

    This church is also long closed, but open on weekends for masses. So, it's worth visiting there. Your decor is different from the others she's not so sober, but more eclectic.

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.
