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.

Candelaria could be described as Old City Bogota. The Gold Museum is on the outskirts of this section of the city. The Botero Museum is another attraction. Neoclassical Colon Theater and Bolivar Square are some of the highlights. We enjoyed strolling the old streets with...More

The La Candelarea area is amazing. A must see while in town. The beauty of the area and building is amazing. Well worth the time. Great spot for picture taking and visiting the Democratic area of Bogota. Just beautiful!

i just love this city, or town, many nice restaurants, or just to go for a glass of wine, or just to walk around, the small streets are so colorful and beautiful.

We started our exploration of Bogota here. It's a great neighborhood to take a walk and experience local culture and food. The kids enjoyed feeding the pigeons and eating ice cream. The Botero Museum is in walking distance from here.

Nice area for a walk through historic buildings. Downside is the large amount of transient homeless leading to questionable safety. Very good nightlife with lots of pubs, theme restaurants. Not easy to find parking, must take cab or uber.
