The Sanctuary of Monserrate is one of the principal tourist destinations in Bogotá. This mountain is located at the eastern boundaries of Bogotá.   Due to its height, 3131 meters above sea level, Monserrate is the perfect location to get a panoramic view of the city. It is really the main symbol of Bogotá,  also a place of pilgrimage, by locals and tourists. 

In a clear dawn, it is possible to watch from Monserrate, the high peaks of the Cordillera Central (A mountain chain), which are part of a National Park, 300 kilometers away. In colonial times, Don Juan de Borja authorized the construction of a holy shrine, on the top of the mountain. Later on, a monastery was also established, taking advantage of the tranquility and the serenity that nature provided in this beautiful place. It could be said that from there you are closer to heaven, and able to compare better God’s creation with human creations. 

To reach the top of Monserrate mountain, there is a stone paved path, together with an air cable car and a funicular. The ride takes just a few minutes, from the station at the base (At the Circunvalar Avenue) to the top.  This transportation system works seven days a week. 

There are two restaurants in Monserrate, providing the best typical and international dishes, while you continue enjoying the view of the city. Pilgrims can visit,  since colonial times, the Chapel of the Virgen Morena, whose original shrine is in Barcelona, Spain, and a beautiful sculpture, El Señor Caído, built in 1556, making reference to the Via Crucis.  

Going south from Monserrate, you can visit the Guadalupe mountain. It is another tutelary mountain of Bogotá. There, a hermitage in honor to the Virgen of Guadalupe was constructed, being destroyed by earth quakes several times. There is also a 15 meter statue in honor to The Virgin Mary, built in 1946. 

These are some of the interesting sites that are included in our tours. HANSA TOURS expects to give tourists the experience of historic and religious Bogotá.
