“what a view! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

we went to Monserrat on the first day we got to bogota, and we realized it was a very good decision. It was a good day, good weather and we got there right on time to see the sunset ( around 6 o clock).

you should definitely bring a coat cause it's cold up there, but the view was completely worthy!

“Spectacular views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

Religious significance is not be understated as on our visit there appeared to be a few groups on a pilgrimage. The views of the city are spectacular. It is very safe and a suggestion is to take the train up and the cable car down....very quick for both.

“Beautiful Vistas of Bogota”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

We took the cable car both directions to the mountain. An interesting place to visit, but if you're short on time, put it a little lower on your list.

“Will leave you breathless”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

I mean it will literally leave you breathless because of the altitude if you haven't been acclimated with the altitude of Bogota yet. It's a spectacular view from the top and taking the funicular or cable car up was a fun ride. You can also find food up there if you get hungry.
