Presidential Palace of Bogota, Casa de Narino
I read that it might be a little tricky having pictures taken by the gate of the Presidential Palace, but I tried anyway. The guards were okay with it and just told me to do it quickly...they are over-protective because the Palace is located just by the busy Plaza Bolivar (security is thus beefed up).
The Casa de Nariño (Spanish for House of Nariño) or Palacio de Nariño (Spanish for Palace of Nariño) was constructed (1908) on the house where Antonio Nariño was born. It is the official home and principal workplace of the President of Colombia, and the main office of the executive branch and is located in the capital city of Bogotá.
The palace also houses works of art and upholstery from different years and the garden houses the Observatorio Astronómico de Bogotá. I did not have much time to see if the guards had a special ceremony for changing shifts, and I am not aware of any tours into the palace.

The Presidential Palace (Casa de Narino), is located just a few steps from the Plaza de Bolivar and is a beautiful, yet heavily guarded fortress that is actually the house of the President of Colombia. Because of its location in the heart of La Candelaria, efforts have been made in recent years to clean up the area and there is a fairly large presence of security personnel.
As far as I know, it's not possible to visit the palace and walking too close to the entrance or stopping to take a photo will get the attention of the guards and you will be told to keep moving.
Named after a former president, this tasteful classical building is guarded like you would not believe. They don't allow photography, but I pretended I did not understand Spanish and was able to take this one.
