Best places to see in Colombia

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.

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.

Museums
Look no further for star quality. Take one small step into this planetarium, where the mysteries of the cosmos are unravelled. 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!

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.

Santa Clara Church
Museums
This church’s ceiling is pretty special. Its sweeping arc is studded with gilded flowers and royal-blue leaves, following the concave curvature from entrance to apse. Santa Clara is one of Bogotá’s oldest churches, but it’s now used as a gallery of religious artworks. As you go around, don’t forget to look at the exhibits – it’s all too tempting just to gaze upwards.
Accommodation near Santa Clara Church
Gold Museum
Museums
What is it about gold that captures the human imagination? There’s a sense of cosmic mastery, that you can cradle the glowing sun in your very hands. The Gold Museum tells the story of our gold-fixation through myriad items from Latin America’s palaces, shrines and overgrown temples. Check out ceremonial paraphernalia from funky amulets to half-human, half-beast figurines.
