Monserrate tour in Bogota

Monserrate tour in Bogota

Discover the greatest cultural symbol of Bogota

Elevated 3,152 meters (10,341 feet) above sea level, the Cerro de Monserrate has become part of the history of the capital, thanks to the large flow of Colombian and foreign visitors, who come for Catholic beliefs or for the beautiful landscape that lets enjoy.

This icon so beloved by Bogota citizens is easily recognizable by the immaculate white church built on the top of the hill, which can be appreciated from all points of the city. Its interior houses the sculpture of the Fallen Lord of Monserrate, Bogota's patron saint, which attracts hundreds of thousands of pilgrims each year seeking spiritual comfort.

Learn how this place became one of the most representative of the city and how its history dates back to pre-Hispanic times.
