La Candelaria is a small, colorful, colonial neighborhood in the center of Colombia’s capital. To its west is downtown, to its east the Andean foothills, giving the barrio a beautiful backdrop. La Candelaria’s hilly, sometimes cobblestone streets, are lined with restaurants, theatres, universities and centuries-old colonial and republican houses. The whole neighbhorhood has a young, artsy atmosphere, and many of the business have colorful, warm interiors. Although tourism has grown greatly in recent years, the neighborhood has retained its charming atmosphere. Walk the streets photographing the old houses, eat in a charming restaurant, visit a museum, go dancing or take a tour – of La Candelaria or on a bike of the whole city!
