Ascend to the top of Mount Monserrate, which towers over Bogota. From the summit--3,152 m (10,341 ft) above sea level--enjoy panoramic views of the city and the surrounding landscape. A 17th-century church perches atop the mountain, dedicated to El Señor Caído (The Fallen Lord), a name derived from a statue depicting Jesus after he was removed from the cross. Christians have used the site of the church as a place of worship since the 1620s, and it remains a popular destination for pilgrims. Nearby, various restaurants, cafes, and souvenir shops provide refreshments and shopping for religious visitors and tourists alike. Get to the top by cable car or funicular, or join those on pilgrimage and make the tough trek on foot. Be wary of overexerting yourself on the mountain, as the high altitude can have adverse effects.

  • The visit is interesting to get a panoramic view of Bogota. You can ascend by cable car or funicular. At the top is a beautiful via crucis with sculptures brought from Italy and a church which houses an altar to the Saint of Monsrrate and the famous Christ fallen who have natural hair donated by believers. There are also 2 restaurants. Worth the visit!
