  • We went to Monserrate on a Sunday, on this day the ticket has a lower price. To get we took a taxi that due to our ignorance left us on the street below and we had to walk a lot to get to the funicular and train station and as we were not used to this type of climb, we arrived with severe muscle aches in legs and back, then we had to make two long queues, one to buy the ticket and one to enter. When I arrived I was offering Mass, so we wait ed so I can admire it in its entirety. Many tourists go taking photos and videos, the view of Bogota from the Church is wonderful. It is advisable to bring snacks and drinks because in the surroundings it could be difficult to get a lot of variety, when we come down we decided to have lunch at one of the nearby restaurants, but it was a terrible mistake since the food does not justify the price they ask for.

  • In fine weather nice views of the city and a church worth seeing, which you should have seen. A place of pilgrimage with history and a good opportunity to pause in the tourist hustle and bustle. Monserrate Sanctuary is a Catholic shrine in Bogota, Colombia. The sanctuary was built between 1650 and 1657 and is located 3,152 meters above sea level. Of course, this church belongs to Bogota like the Eiffel Tower in Paris!
