I was impressed by the beauty of the exposed artifacts and how the Indians were capable to produce them. Surprised with the metallurgical knowledge shown by the artisans that made the different pieces.

Monserrate has the best view in the city. Worth every penny to go up and view Bogota from atop. There are a couple of restaurants and a cafe once you are at the top, as well as some shops to buy souvenirs.

The Cerro de Monserrate is a must while in Bogotá. Nice view, but be careful to choose a good day. We had a clowdy day, however it was worth it. It is also not very expensive...thing we paid around 30'000 pesos for 2 people.

I'm no fan of churches, but this whole set-up is (mostly) pretty impressive. We went up on the cable car and returned on the funicular as the cable car spat it. There are a number of buildings up top, a couple of which are beautiful and, as a non-religious person, I thought the design and layout of the stations of... More

This place is a great spot to get a panoramic view of the city. Lines can be very long on the weekends, best to go on weekdays and in the evenings.

Price isn't ok. Long lines to cat the funicular... It takes time. The church and area isn't that beautiful but the worst... More

We visited Mount Monserrate on a Saturday morning and got a beautiful view of the city from above. It is lovely and scenic, and I quite enjoyed the ride up and down as well. The church at the top, and surrounding buildings and gardens are quite beautiful as well.

You can go up either by cable car or with a train-like waggon. Don´t do that on a sunday, as I had the feeling that half of the population went up the hill :-)

Took the Cable Car up to the Chapel and had dinner with the wife at a wonderful restaurant. Bring a jacket as it get very cold specially in the evenings. High altitude so not a place for those with breathing issues.

One of the most amazing views I have ever seen. And the ride up is a kick. Don't miss this. Splurge at the San Isidro restaurant when you get to the top!!!!
