The Bolivar Square is located at La Candelaria zone. It is huge and beautiful. Around it are some government buildings and the cathedral.

The area is beautiful and the buildings are beautiful too. There are many gift shops around it and you could take amazing pictures.

I totally recommend visiting this places when going to Bogotá.

We visited this area based on recommendations and reviews. We may have missed the point, but there wasn't much to see at all. It's a big square with some government buildings surrounding it. Wasn't worth going out of our way for. Not that it was a terrible experience, but just nothing to it?

Walked around the Plaza Bolivar during the evening was exciting as it was flocked with tourists, locals and food vendors around the perimeters.
Historical buildings which were points of interest were the Palace of Justice, National Capitol borders, the Primary Cathedral of Bogotá and the Liévano Palace (seat of the mayor of Bogotá). Not sure if the Plaza de Bolivar would have been so lively during the day as opposed to the evening but it’s worth a visit nonetheless.

It's a big square with lots of people and lots of pigeons. Surrounded on three sides by historic buildings and on the fourth by the latest incarnation of the courts of justice.
You'll walk through here several times.

Is part of the old Bogota, colony buildings and the presidential and Congress palaces, ideal to take pictures
