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.

  • Despite the Foundation of Bogota have happened in Plaza Bolivar in 1539, the Chorro de Quevedo Square is considered the point of birth of the town, as it was the site chosen for the military settlement of Gonzalo Jiménez de Quesada in 1538. Reflects a colonial atmosphere, with narrow streets and houses with roof tiles. It is a local hangout and one of its brands are the printed graffiti on walls nearby, symbol of cultural manifestations.

  • When I went to the square was under construction, but it seemed quite nice, including the hostel told us to visit. But on the streets nearby have various graffiti on the walls, so it was worth the trip there.

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.

  • 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.
