      About this Bogota tour

      La Candelaria is considered an old city, and upon visiting, you can peel away layers of its history as you stroll past architecture that depicts three main styles – art deco, Baroque and Spanish Colonial. With museums, libraries and several universities based around the neighborhood, it’s not surprising that so many people choose to live and study in this part of the world.

      A must-see on the travel itinerary is Main Square, better known as Plaza Bolivar, which you will visit on this walking tour. Surrounded by many points of interest – including symbol of excellence, Monserrate Church, and one of the country’s most representative theaters, Colón Theatre  – your journey will be memorable to say the least.

      Aside from La Candelaria’s major attractions, such as Luis Angel Arango Library, the Military Museum and Rafael Pombo Poetry House, your experience will focus on the artsy side of things. As you approach 11th Street, Botero Museum will come into view. Containing the works of acclaimed sculptor and painter, Fernando Botero, the collection also features Picasso and Monet masterpieces.

      The Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta Mountains, Guiana Shield and the Andean Region are Colombia’s main gold mining locations. A visit to one of the country’s most important museums, Gold Museum, is included in this tour. Overlooking Santander Park, it represents pre-Hispanic cultures and is designed with three floors exhibiting gold in its purest form.

      Colombia’s Historic Gold Rush

      Many rare gold nuggets have been plucked out of the waters and soil that make up Colombia’s landscape. The South American country, which is named after Christopher Columbus, boasts the 4th biggest economy in the continent. While gold isn’t the integral cog that keeps the economy running, it plays a role. The historic El Dorado myth led to land development, much of which was focused on gold mining. By the 19th century, Colombia became the largest gold producer in the world, and from 1537-1886 gold production amounted to $639,000,000!
