On our walking tours, you’ll see the La Candelaria neighborhood up close, meet its people and learn the stories behind its centuries-old buildings, plazas and historical monuments – which played key roles in the history of Colombia and Latin America. We might walk through a traditional marketand sample local fruits, visit the emerald district, admire centuries-old churches, shop in handicrafts markets, visit some of the neighborhood’s many famous museums, such as the Gold Museum and the museum honoring painter/sculptor Fernando Botero, or dine in one of La Candelaria’s many restaurants.
And if you’re interested in history and human rights, you can also learn about Colombia’s troubled and violent past and present, including its ongoing civil war.
