Palacio de Narino, Bogota

3.9
#42 of 238 in Things to do in Bogota
The official home and workplace of the country's president, Palacio de Narino dates back to the early 1900s. During your tour, view the gallery of flags representing the Colombian Navy, Colombian Air Force, and Colombian National Police. See paintings and sculptures of past presidents, the dining room where huge landscape paintings adorn the walls, and the Emerald Room where convex mirrors and a working 19th-century clock are displayed. Make an appointment for a tour of the grounds ahead of time, but if you just want to watch the changing of the guard, go to the east side of the building.

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.
