  • Nice old colonial building with fountain at the middle. You Will know more about structure of the colonial society. National and d oro museum are far better in the creativity the exposition were built with. Sunday: free entrance.
  • Recently restored, this museum offers an amazing insight to the country's colonial period. It is very well curated and the art exhibition is on edge. Adding to all of this, the building is just beautiful.

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.
