From here you get a lovely view of the city. I suggest taking the cablecar to reach the top.

For food lovers, up there try "agua de panela con queso" (hot sugar cane tea with artisan cheese, a great snack any time of day or night.

Museum
“So good that it should not be missed! There's time for cultural activities too. The Gold Museum is a great opportunity for you to make a different view of the way indigenous tribes were using the gold, not only as a symbol of wealth but also as a piece of jewelry for their armors, especially the chiefs of their communities. You will find this and much more inside this beautiful place called: Museo del Oro.”

History Museum
“A Must :-) It is the oldest in the country and one of the oldest in the continent, built in 1823. Its fortress architecture is built in stone and brick. The plant includes arches, domes and columns forming a sort of Greek cross over which 104 prison cells are distributed, with solid wall façade. The museum houses a collection of over 20,000 pieces including works of art and objects representing different national history periods. Permanent exhibitions present archeology and ethnography samples from Colombian artefacts dating 10,000 years BC, up to twentieth century indigenous and afro- Colombian art and culture.”

Park
“Nice small park surrounded by upscale bars and restuarants. The nightlife is more laid back, for something a little more wild Zona T is better.”
