#41 of 245 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.

  • Only initially I went to downtown Bogota bike to take a few turns and know. After a walk, we saw that many people went to the Palace and it is that it was going on changing of the guard. It was a great experience, hear the voice of a radio announcer who is telling you that it happens, everything was very nice and tidy. As the Government Palace, there is lot of security. If you take a bag checked it you. I highly recommend it.

  • It can only be seen on the outside, is not allowed to enter, the security is pretty good. I found out some guards wearing medieval-style or something, so you feel that it is the entrance of a castle jajajaja

  • It has to be said this is a beautiful square on the right side, with beautiful buildings, and everything is very well maintained. Especially when you here on the weekends, it is very cozy.

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.
