La Candelaria - Downtown, Bogotá: 52 reviews and 117 photos

  Yours truly in the 'funnel street'.
by morgr

Calle del Embudo (street of the funnel), on the left side behind the wall on Plazoleta del Chorro de Quevedo, is so named because of it's shape. It is wider at one end and gradually narrows, much like a funnel. It is far to narrow for a car.

While the street is only about 80 - 100 metres long, it is lined with many bars and cafes on either side. One of which is one of the better reggae bars in Bogota (of which, beleive it or not, there are many). Perhaps that explains the 'Bob Marley Smoke Shop' around the corner?
