Sofitel Bogota Victoria Regia

A city of extremes, this urban metropolis of 7 million inhabitants, one and a half times bigger than New York, sits on a plateau at the foot of the eastern chain of the Andes. It is a gateway to the Colombian soul. Let the bright colors of the La Candelaria district surprise you and be intoxicated by its stylish, colonial buildings, small, Iberian-inspired homes and cobbled streets. A bohemian neighborhood where the streets echo with children's laughter and salsa rhythms and where Baroque churches stand alongside the Botero Museum and houses with wooden balconies. Even more amazing will be your visit to the largest square in Bogotá: plaza de bolivar, with its incredible dimensions, rows of windows and archways. Why not plan a sumptuous picnic using local products such as fritanga (meat and fried vegetables) and almojabana (cheese bread) and take a trip out to laguna de Guatavita, the birthplace of the legend of Eldorado?
