Holidays to Bogota, Colombia + Salt Cathedral + Ville de Leyva + Cartagena

Nestling on a high plateau in the Andes Mountains, Bogotá is Colombia’s cosmopolitan capital. It’s the vibrant cultural centre of this ethnically rich country and due to its superb libraries and universities it is often called the Athens of South America. At 2,600 metres above sea level, Bogata is South America’s third highest capital - after La Paz in Bolivia and Quito in Ecuador. Migrants from Mesoamerica originally settled the area but the city itself was founded in 1537 by the Spanish.
 
La Candelaria is the historic downtown district bursting with museums, churches, restaurants and beautiful colonial buildings. Among its cobbled streets you will find boutique hotels, shops and a thriving nightlife. There are parks and open spaces too and a great way to explore the city is on a walking or bicycle tour.
 
The most important museum in Bogota is the Gold Museum, the most important gold museum in the world with a splendid collection of over 36,000 exquisitely crafted pre-Colombian gold and emerald pieces dating back nearly 2,500 years. Two large carved stones from the San Agustin archaeological site can also be seen here.
 
The small Botero Museum should also not be missed. Housed in a beautiful colonial mansion, it showcases a collection of artwork donated to the city by Fernando Botero, Colombia’s most famous contemporary artist renowned for his proportionally exaggerated chubby figures. It also houses his personal art collect, which includes pieces by Picasso, Renoir, Dalí, Degas, Chagall, Matisse, Monet and Giacometti.
 
We have been arranging holidays to Bogota, Colombia including the Salt Cathedral, Ville de Leyva & Cartagena for over 20 years.
ALL OUR HOLIDAYS TO BOGOTA COLOMBIA, SALT CATHEDRAL, VILL DE LEYVA & CARTAGENA ARE FINANCIALLY PROTECTED wherever in the world you live.
You must visit the Jorge Eliecer Gaitan Municipal Theatre, a major venue for a vast cosmopolitan repertoire of music and dance. Another must-see in Bogotá is the Gold Museum. Here you can marvel at 13,000 brilliantly presented gold artefacts from pre-Spanish cultures, from breastplates to brooches. There are also 20,000 fascinating stone and ceramic pieces from the same period. And don’t miss the cable car or funicular up Monseratte Hill, where you will have wonderful views over the city.
 
The modern face of Colombia is on spectacular view at the Space Museum in the District Planetarium. Watch enthralling video presentations on an 82-foot diameter, domed screen. In contrast, the San Alejo Sunday flea market is home to hundreds of craftsmen restorers and collectors, all showing antiques, crafts, books and curiosities. This is an authentic and fun experience not to be missed on holidays to Bogotá.
