Palacio Arzobispal, Bogota

4.3
#26 of 62 in Sightseeing in Bogota
Architectural Building Tourist Spot
Head to Palacio Arzobispal, the workplace and home of the Archbishop of Bogota, and a building with a rich and storied past. Situated in the main plaza of the city and right next to a grand cathedral, the palace has been a part of the square since the mid 20th century, though a precursor building was used in the mid 18th century. Admire the building's awe-inspiring architecture and Italian sculptor Vico Consorti's intricately carved front door.

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.
