Get to know Bogota from a different perspective, with a healthy dose of culture, art, history, and food! Start this walking tour in Bogota's historic neighbourhood, La Candelaria, where the city was founded in 1538. Enjoy its well-preserved architecture, characterised by Spanish colonial and Baroque styles.
Explore Bogota's uprising urban street art and discover some of its most famous murals and artists. Through these fascinating artistic representations, you’ll learn about Colombia's history, culture, and politics. From there, you’ll get to know all about another element of Colombian culture – cocoa! At a traditional local shop, you'll get the low down on the whole chocolate making process and then try the finest homemade chocolate.
Along the way you’ll also taste 'chicha', a fermented beverage made out of maize, which dates back to ancient Muisca times, and enjoy a traditional 'corrientazo', a popular menu of the day packed with Colombian culinary delights.
Stroll through the streets of La Candelaria, visit Chorro de Quevedo, Museo de Botero (renowned Colombian painter & sculptor), and Plaza de Bolivar (main square). Continue to an empanada shop and indulge in this freshly made street food snack filled with fried with rice, meat, and chicken. Finally, visit Bogota's first printing house and get involved in a short printing workshop featuring traditional techniques.
You'll end this Bogota tour with a first-hand understanding of just how awesome the city is, and how delicious Bogota's food is. Not a bad way to spend an afternoon!
