This square is where most people go to trade emerald. It is known as the black market for trading emeralds.
Colombia is the country that mines and produces the most emeralds for the global market.Our tour guide said that usually groups of 3 to 4 men wear big, bulky jackets so they had room for envelopes containing emeralds that they would buy and sell emeralds right there in the open after examining them.Very interesting to see how trade is done in this open market

Plazoleta (small square) may sound charming, but it is a rather average place surrounded by dull businesslike buildings. The exception is the colonial structure of the prestigious del Rosario university at the Southwest side of the square.

In the middle of the plazoleta is a statue of Gonzalo Jiménez de Quesada (1509 -1579), the Spanish founder of Bogota. During my visits there was a rather sizable book fair in tents. Didn't see any emerald traders.

Beside "museo del Oro" Transmilenio Station and El Rosario University, it is always the place for emerald traders to be buying and selling stones, also visited by skaters and lots of students. You can find souvenir shops, italian and local restaurants and coffee shops.

A pretty unremarkable central plaza near the gold museum. It's okay, just a bit run down and in need of a face-lift. I passed several times along Avenida Jimenez and found no reason whatsoever to linger here.

Nothing really special about this small plaza either. The base of the statue has been covered with graffiti. The buildings are ok but nothing amazing.
