Walking City Tour Bogota

The area of modern Bogotá was first populated by groups of indigenous people that migrated from Mesoamerica. Among these groups were the Muiscas that settled in what are now mainly the Departments of Cundinamarca and Boyacá. With the arrival of the Spanish colonisers the area became a major settlement, founded by Gonzalo Jiménez de Quesada and later capital of the Spanish provinces and the seat of the Viceroyalty of New Granada.

With independence Bogotá became capital of the Gran Colombia and later the capital of the Republic of Colombia. Located at 2.600 m.a.s.l. Bogotá is a big city with over 8 million people that has 2 different faces for tourism. The old Candelaria Historic District is blessed with colonial houses and very close to government buildings and the modern Bogotá to the north where tourists will find all sort of shops, restaurant and bars surrounded by brick constructions all over.
