DescriptionExperience the most authentic walking tour of Bogotá, designed for travelers who want to discover the local lifestyle, food and hidden jewels of the city instead of the traditional sightseeing attractions. Explore the district of La Candelaria for 3 hours, and hear about the city's current issues, social and economic dynamics and interesting historical anecdotes. Start with a coca leaf tea to help you adjust to the altitude and get some energy for the walk. Stroll up the Eje Ambiantal and learn about the reconstruction and social integration carried out by the architect Rogelio Salmona at the turn of the century. Then, enter La Candelaria and walk up to Plaza la Concordia to experience an everyday local market selling fruit and vegetables. Venture down the narrow street of Chorro de Quevedo, and stop to try a cup of chicha, a traditional fermented drink made from maize that dates back to the days of the indigenous ancestors. Make a brief visit to the Botero Museum, and then follow your way down to Plaza de Bolívar to see the most important administrative buildings and legendary Primatial Cathedral. Enter a secret alley full of traditional handmade kitchen utensils, and then end your tour with a glass of fresh oat milk and a delicious, warm pan de bono (a pastry made with cassava flour, stuffed with salted cheese and guava paste).
