Museo del Oro

Museo del Oro or Museum of Gold is one of the most visited places in Bogota. It welcomes over half a million visitors every year. The collections display the history of gold. Here you can see the largest collection of gold artifacts on the planet.

The Salt Cathedral of Zipaquirá

The Salt Cathedral is located near Bogota, in the town of Zipaquirá. It was once a sanctuary made by the miners so they could pray. Its salt mine tunnels go 200 meters below ground level. Since it was first built, the cathedral has been renovated several times. It’s huge and absolutely worth a trip.

Barrio La Candelaria

Visit one of the most famous neighborhoods in the city, Barrio La Candelaria, if you want to see incredible old buildings built in a mix of architectural styles including Baroque, Spanish colonial, and art deco. Don’t miss Plaza del Chorro, a route full of graffiti and street art.
