About the Area
Many of the buildings in the La Candelaria neighborhood - many of them colonial and republican styles - have been preserved and have been declared assets of historical and cultural interest. In this area of the historical center of Bogota there are about 500 institutions or artistic groups, museums and research centers, as well as theaters, libraries and universities.
In their houses of nineteenth-century eaves and colonial balconies, hide the ghosts of the viceroys who once inhabited courtyards and alleys. Today the mansions are theaters (La Candelaria, Seki Sano, El Tecal, García Márquez) and museums (Colonial, Vase, Casa de la Moneda, Quinta de Bolívar, Militar, etc.) or have disappeared to be replaced. the modern buildings of the Universities (La Salle, Externado, Andes, etc.) and the most visited library in the continent, Luis Ángel Arango Library.
Those steep stone streets of La Candelaria, which seem to reach the sky, have seen the history of the country go by. Long before Gonzalo Jiménez de Quesada founded this city in a valley of Alcazars and built twelve huts in El Chorro de Quevedo, it was a sacred site for the Muiscas
