Plaza Del Chorro Del Quevedo, Bogota
(3.8/5 based on 360+ 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. For Plaza Del Chorro Del Quevedo and beyond, use our Bogota tour planner to get the most from your Bogota vacation.

  • Worth knowing the historical importance of the place. Here was founded the city of Bogotá, in 1538. Colonial buildings can still be seen.

  • A good show of street performers can be seen in the square of the Chorro de Quevedo and cuentearía, in the afternoon and evening hours, the square is surrounded by places to eat or drink, very special Crafts sites, for very little money you can buy a delicious canelazo (aguadepanela with brandy) and enjoy a delicious time in a relaxed and Bohemian atmosphere , if you come to Bogota I do not hesitate to book an afternoon to pass by this emblematic site where account history was founded the city, there are no security problems and the best access is by the 5th cra.

  • 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.
