Introduction

This oasis of tranquility is nestled amongst the large buildings, trade and traffic of Bogotá’s north; and provides an escape from the daily grind. The Virrey is a grassy corridor, stretching along Calle 88, all the way from the Autopista Norte to Carrera 7, with innumerable options for anyone looking to take some time out, surrounded by birds and trees, without having to head out of town.

With the Rionegro stream running through its 100,000 m2 of greenery, you’ll find plenty of people, especially on Sundays, relaxing with a bit of yoga, or jogging along the pedestrian paths. There are families enjoying time with their kids, people taking their dogs for a walk and, of course, tourists setting aside their tight itineraries to take a well-deserved break.

No doubt that’s got you in the mood, so read on to find out more about what you can do in this haven in the heart of Bogotá.
