The La Candelaria district is quite interesting. The Spanish clearly had a large settlement in Bogota (unlike in Lima, Peru) and much remains from the early 1700s. The city has made some effort to explain to tourists what is where, by means of signboards on the sidewalks (helpfully in English and Spanish) showing a map and giving information about certain sites. However, there is little else, there are no touristy type books with photos for sale and for certain major sights (such as churches), opening hours are not posted (and one seemed to be closed for two days). Be prepared -- this district could use cleaning and substantial renovation, but at least the original architecture still exists.
