When arriving in Bogota the eastern hills is something you cannot miss, that great green wall that gives a backdrop to this city of almost 8 million inhabitants that live on a height of 2600 meters above see-level. Two of the cities most famous landmarks are situated on top of these hills: Monserrate and Guadalupe . The first at an approximate height of 3,100 m.s.n.m., has a magnificent view over the city that is enjoyed by both Bogotanos and tourists who visit it daily, either with the cable car or steep train. Besides being a place of pilgrimage, it is also one of the great viewpoints of Bogota, where you can see its extension and many of its emblematic buildings. In the 17th century it began being a pilgrimage site, with the construction of a small hermitage that was demolished at the beginning of the 20th century to be replaced
