Description

Discover Ciudad Bolívar, the vibrant heart of southern Bogotá, where the urban landscape transitions into the mountainous outskirts. This sprawling locality is not only one of Bogotá's largest by area but also rich in cultural diversity, thanks to its residents who have migrated from various parts of Colombia seeking a better life away from regional conflicts.

Embark on your journey via Bogotá's efficient public transport system, starting with the TransMilenio and continuing with the TransMiCable. This route offers not only a practical lesson in local transit but also a unique aerial perspective of the city, revealing the vast expanse of the Bogotá savannah and the dense urban fabric of Colombia’s capital. A 35-minute cable car ride from the Portal Tunal brings you spectacular views of northern and western Bogotá, setting the stage for an exploration of urban renewal and cultural flourishing.

Upon arrival, join our local guide at the cultural hub, which includes the Mirador Public Library and the Museum of the Self-Built City. Here, you'll delve into the community's self-sustaining initiatives and artistic expressions, from performing arts to vibrant street murals that decorate the neighborhood's steep streets, offering breathtaking views of the surrounding cloud forests and eastern mountains.

The tour highlights the neighborhood's dynamic street art scene, where every mural tells a story of resilience and dreams. It's an open-air gallery that reflects the spirit and struggles of its people. You'll also discover hidden gems like a unique café museum, curated by local recyclers who showcase fascinating artifacts found in the garbage, providing a glimpse into Bogotá’s past and present through recovered treasures.
