The best way to start exploring Bogota is from the Plaza de Bolívar, the heart of the city. The Plaza gets its name from the first public figure to be ever erected in the city- Simon Bolivar, to show appreciation for his services rendered during the independence movement. All the major tourist attractions as well as important government buildings are all located within the periphery of the Plaza. The reason for this is that the Plaza is where Bogota was declared the seat of New Grenada’s colonial government. While the tourist attractions see crowds flocking in by the dozen, the government buildings aren’t open for public viewing.

Plaza De Bolivar, Bogota Reviews - Write a Review
Colombia's birthplace (declaration of independence) and capital buildings, president's residence all within the same area. Definitely worth seeing along with the surrounding blocks and museums (e.g. Gold, Botero, etc.). As with anywhere else in Bogotá, have fun getting there! Traffic is horrendous...nearly always.
Historical location. A must visit for tourists. Very interesting things happened here
A neoclassic square surrounded by a cathedral and many other institutional buildings. One of the main places to pulse the vibrating atmosphere of Bogotá
It's the perfect place to know the colonial and historic architecture of the city. Is surrounded by many museums related to Colombian independence history and the presidential house. The view is amazing due to the beautiful mountains in the back. It's quite a cultural place.
Great spot to visit while in Bogota. I wouldn't let the pigeons touch me, but it leads to some cool pictures.
