Best places to see in Colombia

Parque de la 93
Parks
It can get a little hectic in the city, so this compact park provides urbanites with a welcome dose of greenery and fresh air. Lazing on sun-drenched lawns, kicking back on shaded benches – this is how Bogotá chills in 93. The streets around the park are a hot ticket for eating out – they’re packed with eateries from familiar fast food to funky foreign fare.

Bolivar Square
Parks
This square is prime for people-watching. Just look at the expression on legendary statesman Simón Bolívar’s statue, who has cast an eye over all and sundry from his plinth for over a century. Snap-happy tourists, stony-faced commuters, protesters, pickpockets and buskers – all members of the ever-entertaining dramatis personae of Bolívar Square. Sit back and enjoy the show.

Church of San Francisco
Monuments
A golden oldie. This 16th-century church is Bogotá’s longest-standing house of worship. An unremarkable stone façade conceals an ornate space so full of gold leaf that it would make King Midas go weak at the knees. The colossal, gilded altarpiece stretches from floor to ceiling and contains a dream team of saintly statuettes in various holy poses. Impressive stuff.

Monserrate Hill
Landmarks
Huff, puff, huff, puff, wow! Climbing this hill can be arduous, but it’s worth it for the views at the top. All Bogotá stretches out beneath you, tiny skyscrapers poking out above the cityscape like blades of grass. It’s a vista that’s best enjoyed over a glass of wine at one of the hilltop restaurants. If uphill treks aren’t your thing, pootle up on the cable car.

Botero Museum
Museums
There aren’t many artists whose work is instantly recognisable. Fernando Botero is one of them. The Colombian’s trademark bulbous figures are just so him. This museum holds an assortment of Botero’s humorous paintings and sculptures, including a rotund Mona Lisa and various oversize nudes. Aside from Botero’s handiwork, there’s a smattering of Braque, Dalí and Picasso.

Planetarium
Museums

You’ll get an insight into the giant leaps in space travel, from the first Apollo missions right up to the present day. Interactive exhibits, explanatory videos and fun workshops complete the picture on this educational space odyssey. Blast off!
