Description

Bogota is a 482 years old city located in the middle of the Andes. On this Online Experience, you will get an opportunity to walk around the colonial streets into the heart of this big Colombian city from the comfort of your home.
We will begin our tour from La Concordia - one of the most famous markets in Bogota - and move to see the site from where the city originated under the Spanish occupation. Here, you will see some old houses that have now been converted into a museum complex, and also visit the First Church of the city.

Making our way down the streets and admiring graffiti by some famous artists, we will reach La Candelaria street. This area is considered the vibrant heart of Bogota, with landmarks like the colonial-era Cathedral, neoclassical Capitol, and the Bolivar Square for us to explore.

As we make our way around the city, I will also regale you with some interesting trivia about Bogota: Have you ever heard about the Muiscas or the chicha? Do you want to know why the Palace of Justice (the Supreme Court) was destroyed twice because of two massive fires? Did you know that there was a guy who tried to turn off the sun for several years and another one who used to run behind every tramcar, looking for his lost sister? The answer to these and more interesting questions are waiting for you on this Online Experience. I look forward to showing you around!

    My father and I joined Rafa on the Explore the Iconic Landmarks of Bogota tour. Rafa was knowledgeable, professional, and friendly. He covered a lot of ground in an hour, all the while keeping up a constant flow of information about the area while also answering our many questions. It was my first time on a virtual tour and I was so impressed. I would highly recommend Rafa and this tour. We loved it!
