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.

Located in the heart of Bogota, the Plaza De Bolivar is an important landmark and a very popular attraction in the city. This particular attraction has seen a lot of political ups and downs in the past and has a rich history attached to it.

  • It was incredible because it was historical but tourists are not allowed into the buildings other than the church. There are plenty of things to do around the square, so it is a good spot to take an Uber to and walk around for exploring.

  • La antigua plaza de la Constitución, hoy llamada Plaza de Bolívar, es el lugar donde confluyen todos los poderes del Estado. Es el corazón del centro histórico de Bogotá. Es un lugar muy seguro y concurrido durante el día. La población de palomas ha crecido desmesuradamente y es un factor a tener en cuenta si la persona sufre de algún tipo de alergia provocada por ese tipo de animales.

  • Amazing actually! I've been to several nations Capitals and it's amazing you can get close to these beautiful buildings and enjoy them!

  • Lovely place, located in the downtown, definitely I recommend it, because you can see a lot of things, like political life and that's pretty interesting, also surround there you can find a lot of historical buildings, and even if is so turistic, the place have a big charming in the streets.

  • Si vas a Bogotá por primera vez tienes que ir a la Plaza de Bolivar, es un sitio de gran valor histórico y cerca de el estan ubicados Museos de interés. Se pueden tomar fotos allí sin ningún problema pues la seguridad es constante.
