Nature, colonial, modernism and current, four words that highlight the range of Bogotá´s architecture. The native Muisca settlements from hundreds of years ago started to define the face of the city and its privileged place in the plateau. Afterwards during when Europeans came, another style will mesh with the old and with the landscape.
On this tour the downtown neighborhood of La Candelaria will open its doors to the place where the city first founded, Chorro de Quevedo. This 8 million people metropolis started with 12 houses, a church and one road. Over the next five centuries dwellings and churches multiplied holding the essence of colonial times in their paintings, altars and ornaments.
Rivers and creeks turned into streets and later in the eighteen and nineteenth century the favorable climate attracted Europeans from England, France and other countries that brought with them the balconies, roofs and big windows that contrast with the “colonial” style.
Our architectural tour takes you through the history of the capital and allows you to understand why and how the Colonial, Tudor, Neoclassical, French, Gothic, Modern and other architectural styles mesh in one place.
Amaze yourself with how all of these mix, even though you can see specific examples of each style, what's amazing is how they combine, the very definition of “eclectic”. In the comfort of your private transport and led by a professional bilingual guide, visit neighborhoods like La Merced, La Macarena, Parkway, Teusaquillo, among others to experience and learn about this architectural cornucopia.
