Best places to see in Colombia

National Museum
Museums
History behind bars. This museum is set in a sturdy 19th-century prison. Today, the only inmates are the exhibits on display – three floors of Colombian miscellanea that lay bare the country’s turbulent history. Trace Colombia’s story through curiosities such as Simón Bolívar’s tattered will, golden ceremonial spoons and funky tribal crowns adorned with iridescent beetle wings.

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.

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.

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.
Accommodations near Botero Museum
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.
