People tend to overlook and quickly dismiss all the possible things they could do during a stopover in any given city. That’s unfortunate because they miss out on lots of amazing things to do—especially when it comes to big cities.
Having said that, those who are particularly interested in culture and history will enjoy the Old Town of Bogota. A place that endures over the centuries as though time was just a dream, where history becomes art—if told properly.
Everything you’ll see here—at least for the most part—began on August 6th, 1538, with 12 huts and a small chapel. Gradually, the houses built in Adobe with thatched roofs became these enchanting houses with a colonial style. In 1717, during the establishment of the Vice-royalty, the embellishment of the town was one of the major projects. And then, it turned into what you’ll look at during sightseeing in the area.
On the other hand, Bogota is a city full of cultural activities, and it’s surrounded by the stunning nature of the Andean mountain range. The Historical Center—known as La Candelaria—and its colonial architecture hold an unparalleled charm for history and culture lovers.
Not only that, but you can also have a lot of fun outside the city, and you don’t need to go too far. Spanning from globally-recognized attractions such as the Salt Cathedral, a stunning Coffee Plantation to challenging hikes in National Parks near the city, Bogota has even more than you could ask.
Question. Why would you spend your time bored at the airport when having all these incredible alternatives at your disposal? I mean, just a quick phone call or message away.
Although the answer may be obvious, it’s not necessarily easy to get the fun I just mentioned on your own. That’s why Parche Cachaco Tours is here. So, considering millions of travelers pass through Bogota on an annual basis, why not purposely carve out some time to experience the city or its off-the-beaten surroundings?
