Soacha

(a few reviews from 1 attraction)
Historic Sites
Soacha is considered a borough of Bogotá, but officially is an autonomous municipality. It has an important industrial zone and is home to mostly working-class families.DemographicsWith a population of 402,007 inhabitants, it is also Bogota's most populous suburb.HistorySoacha was founded on August 8 in 1600. It gained national notoriety after the presidential candidate Luis Carlos Galán was assassinated on August 18, 1989 while visiting the city during his presidential campaign.In 2008, the 'false positives' scandal broke when 22 men from Soacha who had been recruited for work were found dead several hundreds of miles away. They had been killed by the military and presented to authorities as guerrilla fighters (insurgents) killed in battle, in order to increase action head counts. Similar cases have since appeared all over the country.
