Bogotá - Our Lady of Lourdes Church

My joke with my previous picture is apparently not recognized by anyone as a joke. Maybe I should do some work on my humour.

Now back to where it all started in Chapinero. That’s the district of Bogotá where I stayed my first nights in Colombia and also my last ones before returning home.

It’s a very safe neighbourhood whose northern part offers a lot of hotels and restaurants. This is also one of the most important commercial and economic zones of the Colombian capital.
The southern part has a less commercial appearance. While there are a bit less hotels and restaurants, the area is more residential.

Not far from my hotel there was this Church of Our Lady of Lourdes.
It’s architecture represents the Gothic Revival style in Colombia. The church was built in 1875 but modified in 1917.
The square in front of it is cozy and busy until late into the evening.

This is the last picture in my Colombia series, the result of a 24-day tour in the country. I ended up only seen a fraction of that huge country. There’s still so much more.

Despite the fact that quite a number of individual travelers go to Colombia, this remains an unknown country for many.

In total, I uploaded 90 main photos (and 154 in the workshops). During the same period, Sergio (sacimar) presented a lot of Colombian pictures and also Alexandre (gervaso). As Sergio lives there now, I’m sure in the future we will still get to see more beautiful photos of this amazing country.

During the past spring I made another trip. Upon my return, I decided to continue my Colombia series.
You will probably have understood that I lost a little piece of my heart in Colombia (while I returned from my other trip with mixed feelings).

So folks, this was it.
