Amazing sunset experience

Came here on the last day of my visit to Bogota and was truly an amazing experience with a mesmerizing view of the city at sunset. Even though it was cloudy and we only got to see... read more

Monserrate is in 3200 km heights and the last part of the trip to the church is by cable car and the view up is amazing and if you aren't afraid of heights like me you might enjoy the trip much more. The church is like so many others on the inside. But the view is fantastic up there as... More

Even though it was cloudy and we only got to see part of the sunset, it was still very good. Loved being there and was the perfect ending to my trip. Cool artisanal shops... More

the funicular runs in the morning and the cable car in the afternoon. spectacular views from both. the church is the center of activity. the local shops are typical tourist but the food is great. go all the way through the shops to see the working supply mules.

Imposing Place. Very beautiful place to visit. It is necessary to ascend in Funicular or in Cable Car (the Cable Car is Available only from the hours of the midday) The cable car offers a spectacular view, much better than the Funicular. They recommend going up to the mountain on the Funicular and getting off (or coming down) with the... More

The view is great, I will highly recommend the French restaurant on top of Monserrate and the local shops that are in the back of the church for some nice souvenirs.

Beautiful views of the city, it's a hike going up but once you get there you'll have the best vantage view of the whole city.

Unfortunately we visited in high season and as it was just after New year the queues were about an hour long. Be prepared for the long lines and take appropriate clothing as it was scorching the day we went. Annoyingly, once we got to the ticket office we then had to queue all over again for the actual funicular up... More

Since we stayed in La Candelaria we had to visit Mount Monserrate. We went there just before noon on a sunny day and few clouds made the pictures look gorgeous without blocking any view. Very easy place to get to and inexpensive. Elevation of 3,170 meters. Surely, Mount Monserrate made the trip extra special and memorable.
