Plaza Del Chorro Del Quevedo, Bogota

(3.8/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • We could call this square as the Centre of Candelaria. The square itself is very small, but it is a point of reference for many young people who attend the hostels in the area.

  • The square is in full tasks of repair and maintenance due to this is that not is it could appreciate in all its worth, itself the sector general is attractive, them streets typical of the District of the Bogota old, trails narrow, some sculptures in them ceilings, many subtracted and places of meals make of the place an attraction for consider, that itself , also many young "smoked" and, in some places, an intense smell to the marijuana!

  • Bogota is an amazing and big city. This city has incredible places to visit. One of those places is named Chorro de Quevedo.This is an interesting touristic place in Bogota because there are many cultures that meet at different cafes and bars.One of most interesting plans is drinking Chicha, an ancestral fermented corn juice. Also, everyday, at 5 or 6 pm, some people narrate fantastic histories about mythical characters from Bogota. This place receives thousands of tourists a year. They are attracted by the architecture and the color of this place. Remember it, you are gonna live amazing experiences if you visit Bogota and even more if you visit Chorro de Quevedo
  • Bonito sitio para un café
  • It is a large place of recreation in which there are different forms of youth entertainment at economical prices, even there are days that presents comedians of various genres.

  • A mystical place where it is said that Bogota was founded in 1512, is also a commercial and touristic place. The gastronomy and the art that there is around delights to the passers-by.
