Bienvenidos a Bogotá!

Bogotá is city of contrasts, offering many different experiences to all visitors. Bogotá is the capital and largest city in Colombia. A melting pot of people from around the country, it is diverse and multicultural, with a blend of modern and colonial architecture.


The landscape of Bogotá, marked by the green of the Andes to the east, is spectacularly one-of-a-kind. Apart from the many outdoor spaces in Bogotá, travelers find it an ideal place to do business, or explore history, food, culture and many other local customs.


There are lots of places, and museums to visit in Bogota. The food is delicious, and really affordable. People are very friendly, and always looking to help you anywhere you go.


The Bolívar Square is the main square of the Colombian capital Bogotá. The square, previously called Plaza Mayor until 1821 and Plaza de la Constitución, is located in the heart of the historical area.

The beautiful Cathedral of Bogotá is situated in Bolivar Square.

This was my first trip to Colombia and I loved it. It was more interesting than I thought it would be. The only thing I didn’t like was the altitude sickness which they call saroche. Bogotá is in the top four of cities, with the highest altitude in the world. I felt quite unwell on the first day, but gradually got better. I have many more posts to come about Colombia…

  1. I didn’t know it was one of the top four highest cities in the world or about the altitude sickness. I’m glad you got to feeling better. This is a beautiful post as always 😊
