    When I was a child was going to the library every day and I gave much like to see it restored. Thus non-believer is very high and solemn place to visit, a corner and pleasant meeting point.

    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.

    Church icon of Bogotá, in every Easter there are beautiful events, the bad thing is that it is an unsafe area so no longer it can.

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.
