Plaza de Bolivar, Tunja
(4.4/5 based on 80+ reviews on the web)
Visit Bogota’s principle plaza, Plaza de Bolivar, situated in the heart of the city. The square houses a number of important government buildings and a statue of Simon Bolivar, sculpted in 1846, the first public monument in the area. Find the palace of justice, government headquarters, cathedral, and the national capitol building within a stone's throw from here, so you are sure to have plenty to see. Research activities before you arrive; the square frequently plays host to concerts, farmer's markets, and festivals. Try the "aqua aromatica," served by a few of the stalls situated around the square, a refreshing and delicious tea that is hard to find anywhere else in the quality seen here.
