Bogotá and Montserrate Cable Car Tour
After picking you up from your hotel in the Colombian capital, we'll begin our guided tour of Bogotá by driving through the La Candelaria district. In this part of the city we'll see the exterior of historic monuments such as the Colon Theatre or the San Carlos Palace. Did you know that this building currently houses the headquarters of the Foreign Ministry?
During the route through the La Candelaria district of Bogotá, we'll also pass by the church of San Ignacio de Loyola. The earthquake that the city suffered in 1763 seriously affected the temple, which, however, could be restored, preserving part of its original architecture. We'll continue our tour of the Colombian capital until we stop in front of the Presidential Palace of Nariño. Do you know the origins of this emblematic building?
Our next stop will be at the famous Plaza Bolívar. Around this mythical esplanade, we'll see some beautiful monuments as the Primary Cathedral of Colombia, the National Capitol (which houses one of the country's parliamentary seats) and the Liévano Palace, the seat of the municipal mayor's office.
We'll then enjoy a guided tour of the Gold Museum. Its exhibition of pre-Hispanic art is one of the most important in Latin America - a living history of the continent! To round off the tour, we'll take the Montserrate cable car, which will take us to the top of the hill from where we'll have exceptional views of the metropolis.
After four hours, we'll take you to your hotel.
The Gold Museum is closed on Mondays. If you take the tour on this day, instead of contemplating the golden pieces of the museum we'll visit the Botero Museum instead. The works of Fernando Botero, one of the most established Colombian artists, will surely surprise you!
