We rode the funicular in the morning (cable car in the afternoon) up Monserrate to see the stunning views across the vast city of Bogota. Beautiful gardens, a pretty church and birds everywhere. A lovely way to spend a few hours.

Monserrate is a must see when in Bogota. We visited the mount as part of a tour with Bogota Pass (check out my review). We took the teleférico up. Once at the top we heard the history of the mount, went into the church, ate some empanadas and enjoyed the view. They also have gift shops and booths to buy... More

Get there early or be prepared to stand in line for over an hour going up and coming down. The views and architecture are worth it. Wear good walking shoes as you are climbing some steep trails once you get off the ride to the top. It is not really the top. Avoid the restaurants at the end of the... More

Such a fun ride up the mountain and down. Loved the views, landscaping, and architecture. Definitely a must on your trip to Bogota. Get into the first section of the cable car for the best view and stand by the window because the cars fill up. Get there 15 minutes before the open ( I think 10am) to get in... More

Try to go up with the Funicula (train) and down with the cable car. The best view over Bogota and a small church make the trip pretty cool.

This is a church that is filled with tourists. It does have great views of Bogota and the ride up and down on the funicular is great.

It is a must to visit this great place if you are visiting the city. It has a great view and it is a symbol of the local culture. I have been there many times and I never get bored of going. Best time to go would be around 5 p.m of a sunny day, so you have the chance... More

I love this location. we use the cable car to reach the top of the mountain. It has an amazing view of Bogota. we like the beautiful church, and there´s a few gift shops. you can use also a train to reach the top. Monserrate is located more than 3000 mt. above the sea level. its just awesome!

No tour of Bogota would be complete without a trip up Monserrate for the view of the city. We went up the teleferico in the morning on a sunny day, and we could see the entire city to the farthest west regions. Next time, we will try to go in the evening to see the city lights. The cathedral at... More
