In the shades of “La Macarena”

La Macarena, as locals like to put it, still lives “like a village.” And if it is a village, it’s certainly a global one. Urbanization only took off with Torres del Parque, built in the 60’s by renowned architect Rogelio Salmona. The neighborhood is characterized by its cultural ambiance, there are many art galleries such as Alonso Garcés, NC-Arte, Valenzuela-Klenner and Espacio El Dorado and the museum of modern art, MAMBO. La Macarena also offers a great variety of international kitchens, you can find Italian, Spanish, Peruvian, Argentinian, Swedish and even a Serbian restaurant in this colorful and cosy neighborhood. In “El Konny”, a tiny supermarket in Las Torres, you can find a special selection of products from around the world that you won’t find easily anywhere else in Bogotá. For example, think of Indian curries, Belgian Jules DeStrooper cookies, French cheeses and every day they sell fresh bread from Andante, which is on the other side of Las Torres del Parque.

Stroll the streets of La Macarena and admire the iconic architecture, then go up into the mountains to discover the hidden bohemian neighborhood of Bosque Izquierdo.
