Plaza De Bolivar - Review

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. Even though the Plaza De Bolivar tickets are free of any charge, still you can easily opt for the Plaza De Bolivar tour tickets. The Plaza De Bolivar tours are available at an affordable price and will guide you with the history of this scenic attraction.

Plaza De Bolivar, Bogota Reviews

  • Nice place to chill. It's right on the city center and it is a good spot to start a tour around Bogota. There are plenty restaurants around and it is also close to Monserrate, one of most visited places in the city. Bad thing is there are really A LOT of pigeons so if you don't like them stay away from this place.

  • Wide open space and wasn't harassed by street vendors. It's a pretty remarkable place and a must see. A lot of history here. The buildings in the square are large and impressive and the area is pretty clean and free of garbage.

  • Loved it! Nice square to just hang out, take pictures, feed the birds if you want. There were lots of side activities going on like a singer, dancer, mime etc. Also worth noting is I also felt safe as there were cops all around the square so no need to be worried about safety. It was hard getting a cab from there though. Had to walk past the square to find one. It's location is central so you can include a trip to the gold museum and a few other spots together in one.

  • It's a place with a lot of history and really nice government buildings. But there are tons of street vendors which take away its charm. You get to the point that you just was to leave.

  • This is a must go place in Bogota with the kids. You will find hundreds of Pigeons/Doves that are just waiting there to play with you. There are a few people selling bags with uncooked corn that you will use to attract this birds they'll be all over you. Very fun time specially for kids. Beware of people selling pictures of you and your family
