High above Bogotá (and I do mean high, at over 10,000 feet above sea level) and away from the traffic you will find panoramic views of the city alongside an iconic Colombian pilgrimage site. My favorite part of the church is actually the "penitent's chapel" behind the main sanctuary. It has beautiful stained glass which depicts both the sobering reality... More

Definitely worth a visit. We were really lucky to have a clear dry day. Also look out for various breeds of hummingbirds.

I enjoyed going up to the top of Monserrate last week in Bogota. The funicular ride provided a great view of the city and was affordable. The area at the top is quite expansive, but doesn't offer much. It was just enjoyable to stand up against the edge of the viewing area and enjoy the panoramic views of the city.... More

This was my first time in Bogotá, and I only had 12 hours to spend in the city. Someone recommended this spot to me, and I wasn't disappointed. I went early cloudless morning, and I got to see a spectacular view of the city. I highly recommend anyone to go this place, and you will be rewarded with a great... More

Great views at an affordable price. The air is thin up there so take it slow. I recommend taking a taxi to the teleferico, even if coming from downtown.

What a splendid way to spend some hours on top of Bogota! Excellent spot and really nice to walk up there, hang out, shop, eat or enter the church. The views are great and i reccomend it even though you think it's cloudy.. Some minutes are enough to discover the beautiful Bogota.

We took advantage of the late morning sunshine and took the telerferico round-trip for the views and to have an early lunch. The views were spectacular and give a real feel for the size of Bogota. Note that there's a discount for visitors 62 years and older.

This was my final item to check off my 'must see' Bogota list. I'm glad I finally did it because the view is amazing! The setting reminded me of the Pueblito Paisa attraction in Medellin, but better. My only criticism was the presence of the tacky Christmas decorations scattered everywhere. Currently the foot path up is closed. Just as well,... More

We visited Mount Monserrate on a bleaky day (usual weather in 'Monserrate'). We took the tram / cable car / teleférico to the mountain. The ride was fair. The cable car was a tad crammed because the operators fit as many people as possible inside. Since I am claustrophobic, it bothered slightly. There is the option of a train. We... More
