the humane scale of architecture and streets, the presence of the cultural traces, the liveliness of street life, the presence of various gastronomic choices make the area an indispensable destination to go in bogotá.

But don't stay after dark...,we were a tad distressed when we couldn't find a taxi and the hoards of people were getting crazy around 6pm and the streets dark. Highly suggest morning to mid afternoon if traveling with young ones.

This is kind of the old town in Bogota. Lots of older and smaller buildings with lots of bars and restaurants. Be sure to keep an eye to your stuff.

The Candelaria is a great area for a casual stroll to enjoy the colonial era buildings and the breathtaking views up to the mountains. Do keep your valuables in a safe place.
