"BOGOTA: LA CALENDARIO" Colombia Things to Do Tip by swesn

Colombia Things to Do: 240 reviews and 516 photos

The Bogota centre's oldest district is La Calendario. It is a charming colonial centre, very picturesque, colourful and walkable.

As usual, there is the impressive Catedral and large squarish Plaza de Bolivar in the heart of the city centre. Next to the plaza is another imposing building - Capitolio Nacional, with fine colonnades, where the government ministries and congress are.

Some truly striking churches are Iglesia de Maria del Carmen with walls in layers of red and white... and Iglesia San Agustin which is strongly ornamented.

There are many museums located in this city centre. Almost all of them are closed on Mondays.
