Energetic Bogotá has grabbed global headlines as a bike-friendly city, but finding the best routes can be a challenge for first-time visitors. Grab a bike to explore the city with a guide to lead the way, pedaling through La Candelaria, Plaza de Toros, and neighborhoods with colorful street art. Break up the mostly-flat route with stops at a fresh fruit market and a coffee factory.

The place is like a garden (not so well curated) but safe for walking. Sometimes there are some exibitions related to Simon Bolivar.

Simon Bolívar is such an important person in S.A. history that this lovely place is a must. It is hard to get a taxi from here. You have to walk to the very end of the Plaza de Periodistas.

After you are tired of wandering around Bogota come here. This is a house that Liberator Simon Bolivar lived in restored in all its grandeur and simplicity. BUT the best part for tired tourists might be the cooling, tree protected gardens that are truly beautiful

Interesting about this former residence of Bolivar is, it sheds some light on what kind of a person he was. I do not know if he slept in the bed on show in one of the rooms, but if he did he was a very short man. Lifestylewise Bolivar, clearly was a member of the national bourgeoisie, who wanted to keep the wealth of the colony for themselves and not be shipped to Spain. Indeed, a progressive objective. Moreover Bolivar, Santander and others were successful. However, as a conservative politician Bolivar is not known for his preparedness to share the national wealth. Post-independence, inequality has remained one of the major issues to be addressed. Looking at the paintings of the battle of Boyacá in 1819, Bolivar waged a conventional war against the Spanish colonial army. He fought the Spanish with their own weapons and with training received from them. It was not a people's or guerilla war. The beautiful gardens are worth a visit in their own right.

The garden is nice but inside the house there is not so much to see. Some furniture and personal things of Simon Bolivar. The aspect of the house it is not so impressive.
