Bogota seems to be crawling onto the eastern mountain range, where large forests are located which before the arrival of the Spaniards were considered sacred by the Muiscas. Because of their connection with the sun, their great God.
This great city that officially is called Santa Fe de Bogota is now a bustling city that lies on an altitude of 2.600 m above seelevel. In recent years it has become a source of inspiration for those who are here if only for a day, a week or forever. It is a city in permanent transformation, product of its diversity. The place chosen for its location in 1538 was Teusaquillo and in 1539, its official foundation was in the Plaza de Bolivar, which today remains the heart of the city.
