Our guide will pick you up at the hotel and then take you to La Candelaria, the heart of Bogotá, to discover what this neighborhood has hidden away. You will be strolling among colonial houses, baroque churches, and art deco architecture.
For a start, you will visit Chorro de Quevedo Square, the foundational plaza that holds Spanish history which mixes with the lively spirit of street musicians, crafters, storytellers, and young happy people.
