La Candelaria, Bogota

4.1
Walk through the colorful, cobbled streets of La Candelaria to get a feel for how life in Bogota once was. The historical old town offers plenty of great attractions, such as museums, theaters, universities, and important government buildings. The neighborhood also serves as a bohemian and alternative hotspot, with plenty of vibrant street art contrasting with the museums' traditional exhibits. Check out both faces of the district and decide which one you think suits it best. Put La Candelaria into our Bogota trip itinerary tool to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Bogota.

    It is necessary that we dedicate a few hours to meet and walk through the historical centre of towns; the museums, churches, public buildings, beautiful buildings, street artists, restaurants, anyway, there we find practically everything. The sights are very close to each other, we do the Center walk to know the main points. Be sure to walk, lunch and make beautiful pictures.

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.
