Brimming with hundreds of artistic institutions, visitors can browse museums, research centers, libraries, theaters and universities.

A street in La Candelaria neighborhood of Bogotá

Named after the church Nuestra Senora de la Candelaria, the Old City of Bogotá is the core of the historical center. A promenade in the cobbled pedestrian streets is littered with brightly painted, red-tiled houses, wood-carved balconies and wrought iron doors. You'll find Spanish Colonial, Baroque and art deco inspired architecture in this area. A delightful walk in the day, but for safety's sake, avoid the deserted area at dusk.
