  • This church, which is must-see is located in one of the most emblematic neighbourhoods of the city. It is beautiful and there is usually no people, so you can visit calmly without noise and without the crowds.

  • The Church is very nice, when I went you were making some arrangements. Quite interesting celebration of Kings mages who do in this town. The area is not very safe, caution is advised.

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.
