    It's a fairly urbanized square, located in downtown Bogota. Before the advent of the Republic, it was called San Francisco Park for being very close to the convent and Church of the same name, has also been called the square of herbs because of their trees. Some sources cite as creation of Bogotá. Its highlight is the statue of Francisco de Paula Santander (military and Colombian politician, influential American emancipation in front of the Spanish Empire), as well as your source, your trees, the building of the company Avianca and the gold Museum.

    Like much around this part of the centro area it is dirty and run down and nothing much here. It is close to the Gold Mueum so you may pass by.  more »

    I think this square bears his name by being next to the Santander park adjacent to the gold Museum, is a place where all kinds of people, tourists usually carrying your camera photo, the elderly with his cane, the young man with his tattoos and clothing and adult with your dress classic or wrapped sport is observed lastimosente faced with this we see some people who meet in the Park and generate an atmosphere of uncleanliness and insecure about their physical appearance and disorderly, however, we see the presence of police and surveillance private in the surroundings, there are shops offering a variety of products and some meals and coffee establishments, as well as the traditional footwear plunger everything to make us feel proud of our culture, tradition and trade dynamic in a society ever more distrustful but risky you see on an urban adventure.

    Landmark in the Centre of Bogotá by the famous fountain called "Cardigan". Unfortunately this place remains somewhat neglected despite the efforts of the city toilet service, since dirty it tramps.

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.
