Would you like to learn about the history and culture in Bogotá… from within? This experience will provide you with a non-commercial touristic opportunity. Our journey starts at the “Plazoleta del Rosario”, where you can see the statue honoring our founder, Gonzalo Jiménez de Quesada, and which is a central spot to the most typical coffee shops, restaurants, and traditional centers of cultural life in Bogotá. We begin by visiting the “Salón Fontana”, where “kumis” and “rollito” are a must. Then, we visit the oldest bowling alley in town, “Bolera San Francisco,” still not under the influence of automated machinery, . Just across the street is the Plaza Santander, a pretty square surrounded by the buildings of the Central Bank including the Gold Museum. From here we can visit three very important churches which lie in a row, the traditional Café San Moritz (a true reminiscence of the old Bogotá), and later spend some time at a pintoresque bookstore with infinite possibilities known as Babel Books. In this journey, good coffee, tasty food, and many other fascinating activities are close at hand!
