Palace of the president

The president residence is behind the Plaza de Bolivar. There is no access to the place but you can see it from outside. It is heavily guarded by military and police.

Palacio de Nariño, the Colombian president's residence, is a nice activity to round up your visit to Bogota. Very well prepared tour guides (young members of the army) will take you on a 90 min walking tour around the palace. On the down side, despite it's large size, other Presidential "palaces" in Latin America are way more impressive and have... More

As a presidencial house is the least public space in the city. There is a ridicule condition that you are forbidden to use the sidewalk to walk, a very stupid norm, as it should be the stupid who decided this nonsense. It has a nice plaza, not a public one, linking the Parlament with the house, in the middle there... More

Our Tour Guide from the Tourist Office did a good job explaining about this palace where the Columbian President lives and works ( like the White House in Washington, DC). The back areas of this place is more beautiful, particularly where the 2 guards are present. I got my picture taken with both guards who are both smiling! We all... More

A great walk-by for those touring Bogota. The guards are very friendly and their uniforms make for great pictures. You are not allowed to step too close to the fence, but you may catch a glimpse of the President.

Isn't it awesome to see a different county's "White House?" I thought it was. Very cool, historic, and interesting. The guards are nice, although I wouldn't push it. They also obviously have a job to do!

This is one of the most beautiful presidential residences I have seen. You have the chance to go online and request a tour. We did it and the place is amazing. Tour takes about 1 hour and describe the art and history of the palace, given by one of the members of the presidential guard

We only looked from the outside, but you need to come here. You can see the presidential guards standing outside and even get your picture taken with them.

Nice building surrounded by soldiers with guns. There are homeless people in the area. You cannot enter the building or grounds.
