If you are planning to come to Bogotá, you can't miss La Candelaria! Besides being the home to the local and national governments, this neighborhood is a magical place, especially as the night falls in. Start your visit at the plaza where Bogotá was allegedly founded in 1538; next, walk up and down its streets, decorated with a colorful combination of modern and colonial houses and buildings that witness the reconstruction of the city after the “Bogotazo” in 1948. If you prefer not to walk too much, you can also take a tram to sight-see, watch a play in one of the many theater houses around the neighborhood, taste the indigenous drink made from fermented corn, or visit the many houses and museums filled with ghost stories, all while enjoying great food and a beautiful view of the city. These and many more things will turn your visit into a wonderful experience!
