#85 of 240 in Things to do in Bogota
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.

  • A beautiful colonial church, located between the Apostolic Nunciature and the Cathedral (internally connected to the Cathedral). It keeps permanently exposed the Blessed Sacrament; its walls are decorated with paintings of Arce y Ceballos (painter of the colonial era), all which facilitates the gathering and prayer. Magnificent and very!

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.
