Full description
Discover the number 1 attraction of Bogotá, on a guided tour to The Sanctuary of Monserrate. Start your day at the meeting point, where you will have a tasting of the typical coca tea. Then, walk around 1 km towards the Monserrate funicular and cable car box office. 

There are several ways to reach the top of the mountain, including by cable car, funicular railway, and on foot. In this tour, you will be able to choose between ascending in the cable car or via the funicular railway. Both journeys are short, although the cable car offers more spectacular views on the way up.

Head up the mountain and appreciate the incredible views of the city skyline below you. Once up in the mountain, take a walk to get to know the Monserrate Sanctuary interiors and the surroundings. Learn about the history of the site, including how local indigenous peoples once called the mountain 'grandmother’s foot'. Also find out about how it was an important place for religious traditions, particularly because the sun rises directly behind the mountain during the solstice in June.

Finally, taste a typical snack of santafereño, before taking the return journey back down the mountain on foot. Hike along the camino antiguo, or ancient trail. Enjoy the incredible natural scenery as you walk until you end the tour back at the meeting point.
