See the birthplace of Bogotá at Plaza Del Chorro Del Quevedo. Established as a garrison by Gonzalo Jimenez de Quesada, who later founded the city in the same place in 1538, the square has long served as one of Bogotá's social hubs. These days, students and alternative youngsters meet here in the evening to socialize before heading out for a night on the town. Try "chicha," a traditional Colombian alcoholic drink made from fermented corn. You can find plenty of stalls selling the drink in the surrounding streets. With our world travel planner, Bogota attractions like Plaza Del Chorro Del Quevedo can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • A bit higher than the rest of La Candelaria, this is a small square where mainly young adults hangout. A lot of graffiti art on the walls of houses and two alleys descending towards Avenida Jimenez...  more »
  • Very small with street vendors, graffiti art and coffee shops. Nice to take in the atmosphere over a coffee or a drink.  more »
