Palacio Arzobispal, Bogota
(4.2/5 based on 50+ reviews on the web)
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. Take a look at our Bogota vacation trip planner to schedule your visit to Palacio Arzobispal and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • The building that houses the Archbishop of Bogotá is attached to the Cathedral, in the Bolívar Square. I couldn't get in, but I took a look outside the cloister and it is quite beautiful.

  • Our Tour Guide informed us that the Popes stayed here when visiting Bogota. Two popes had done this. Access to this Palace is not allowed to tourists. We just took took pictures from outside.
