Four recommendations to keep in mind before attending a concert in BogotáHotel Andes Plaza 27/09/2022
Did you know that this great tourist attraction originates from the Las Nieves mountain? This is how the Muiscas baptized it because of the frequent cloudiness. Years later, a monastery dedicated to the Virgin of Montserrat was founded there.
This is located in the capital of the country, Bogotá Colombia at 3,172 meters above sea level. There are several ways to climb, if you choose the option of climbing the 1,115 steps, you will enjoy the path, the view and the emotion that you feel as you get closer. However, although it is not necessary to have the best physical condition, it is good to be careful because height and distance sometimes play tricks on you, so maintaining an average pace and good hydration are the keys to success in this path.
We also recommend the cable car means of transportation, which is very comfortable and gives you an incredible panoramic view of the city of Bogotá, while you travel the 820 meters from the station to the Cerro de Monserrate.
All this adventure is due to the fact that at the top of the hill rests a sanctuary dating from 1620 with the hermitage of Nuestra Señora de Monserrate, which has small chapels for pilgrims around it.
Behind the sanctuary, there is a large square with handicrafts and souvenirs, next to it several restaurants where you can taste the most typical of Bogota cuisine, such as hot chocolate with tamale and bread, to the famous rib broth, the changua, the chilli and much more.
In addition, there are two traditional restaurants that have quite large terraces with a great view of the city, where you can enjoy local food as well as international dishes.
A plan that you definitely cannot miss when you come to the country's capital with your family, friends or partner. Where you can enjoy the best panoramas of Bogotá, like movie sunsets and then appreciate the illuminated capital at night. Surely you will not want to miss this spectacular view of the highest viewpoint in Colombia.
