Bogota Guide Travel

Bogota is a city of contrasting architectural styles, which highlight the various influences in the capital of Colombia for 500 years of history. Being a typical Spanish colonial city during the centuries 17, 18 and 19, Bogota began to reflect other European influences during the 20th century. For example, the palaces of the city built in the early 20th century French influence, while residential areas built in the mid 20th century English influence. The skyscrapers of Bogota, which were built in the late 20th century, clearly represent the American architectural style.
