Plaza Del Chorro Del Quevedo, Bogota

(420+ reviews on the web)
Landmark Tourist Spot
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. For Plaza Del Chorro Del Quevedo and beyond, use our Bogota tour planner to get the most from your Bogota vacation.
