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.

Jose Celestino Mutis Botanical Garden
Attractions
Plants and peace. This quiet botanical garden’s a place to breathe deep and find inner tranquillity. It brings together thousands of plant species from all of Colombia’s diverse ecosystems, from the cloud forests of the Andes to the frosty Páramo tundra. Once you’ve strolled among the orchids and bromeliads, enjoy the fruits of nature with a refreshing glass of juice at the café.

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.

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.
Accommodations near Church of San Francisco
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.
