Best places to see in Colombia

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.

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.

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.

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.
