Mount Monserrate

Highly recommended
This hilltop basilica, a place of pilgrimage that gets very busy during religious festivals, is perched at an altitude of 3 152m, on the highest point of the massif. Of a brilliant whiteness in fine weather, and lit up at night, the sanctuary is visible from just about everywhere in the city. To reach it, take the path, half-paved walkway, half-stairway. Very popular on Saturdays with pilgrims and young people in need of exercise, it affords extensive panoramic views of Bogotá's urban sprawl.
