    At the other end from the Plaza Bolivar within La Candelaria, I saw this colorful church with an interior that matches the color outside. Entrance free for all churches in the old town.

    Bogota Old Town 15 (Setup)

    Bogota was established on a plateu, neither on a hill-top nor on a valley. Thats why at some places you get spectacular view of the city giving you an impression of rolling hils that holds the city.

    The old town has also its share on narrower stoned streets built on the hill with preserved colonial houses.

    This is the colonial area of Bogota. I just walked around here on the cobblestoned streets and took in all the colorful buildings.
