Our Overseas Adventure Travel group enjoyed this Baroque colonial neighborhood, with an excellent local guide. Narrow streets harken to a colonial time. Festive painted buildings enhance the flavor. It’s not necessary to have a guide but explanation about preservation and restoration of the barrio is a learning experience. In Bogotá, this is a must-see neighborhood ringed by towering mountains.

Loved the vibe, not at all edgy as some reviews suggest. That said, not a place to wander at night. Easy access to great museums, most are free or have concessions and are beautifully presented. The joy however is happening upon little bars and restaurants and taking a trip up to Monserrate.

We got to like the place the longer we stayed and the more we explored

The architecture is lovely and the area is packed with most if not all of the sights of Bogotá. Large number of museums and plenty of public buildings, churches etc

Lots of cafes, bars and restaurants and a few shops. There is a huge number of street vendors but they do not hassle you

Only place to stay in Bogotá in my view

Very safe and charming place to eat and walk around. Everything is near and you can take wonderful pics of the little stores, streets and churches.

Walking through these streets throws you back in time. This neighborhood is very old, interesting and amazing. We saw it in daytime. A must to see.

As a Youtube content creator, one of the things I like to do is go to where the real people of a given city live and hangout. Candelaria definitely has some tourists, but generally it's mainly locals who are out going to bars, restaurants or chilling. I really enjoyed walking along the small narrow streets with our local tour and learning about the history of Bogota which started as a small square in the area. I felt that the place was safe to walk around in and was able to meet some really interesting people as a women's performance art festival was going on at the time.

Take in the sights of this very old neighborhood in Bogota.

Loved the wood carved balconies.

Nice wide street to walk on and a fair amount of shops to enjoy as well.

A must visit to experience Bogota.
