Was lucky to have nice weather, and then what an amazing view over the city of Bogota. If there is one thing to do in Bogota that’s it. I can really recommend if the weather is ok.

Normally I would pass on visiting a location like this because heights aren’t enjoyable for me. The family had it planned and I went along. I’m glad I did! The line that takes visitors up the mount is incredible. Once I got to the top...More

Absolutely stunning views, a long wait to get up and down on a Sunday but well worth it, got a little dizzy due to the height!

We visited in the morning, and it was a bit cloudy, but the view over Bogota and of the surrounding mountains was spectacular. The church and grounds were nicely kept but not particularly memorable.
