How much gold do you think you can see before your eyes start to hurt? Can’t put a number on it? Head down to the Museo del Oro and see for yourself. Bogota’s most prized possession, the Museo del Oro literally translates to the ‘museum of gold’. Displaying over 34,000 pieces of gold and some 20,000 of other Columbian relics, the museum is spread over 3 floors. The second and third floors is where it gets exciting; the former segregates the exhibits into regions from where they were procured and how they were used with an interesting fact on women figurines and their role in worship. The third floor is where they tell you how gold was used in rituals including the oldest warrior figurine that was found in an unnamed gold belt. There’s a lot more to this museum than just gold- it’s a great way to understand what South America was before the Spanish inquisition.
