After meeting our guide at the meeting point near the Gold Museum, you will start the tour with a coca leaf tea to help use adjust to the altitude and gain some energy for the walk. We will walk up the Eje Ambiantal, and learn about the reconstruction and social integration carried out by architect Rogelio Salmona at the turn of the century. Then we will enter La Candelaria and walk up to Plaza la Concordia, a local market that exhibits the day-to-day vendor/client relations for vegetable and fruit sales. Once out, we will walk the narrow street of Chorro de Quevedo where we will make a stop to try a cup of chicha, a traditional fermented drink made with maize; preparation was inherited from our native indigenous ancestors.  

Then, we will make a brief visit to the Botero Museum and follow our way down to Plaza de Bolívar. This main square is the home to the most important administrative buildings and the legendary Prime Cathedral. Keeping away from the mainstream area, we will enter a secret alley full of traditional handmade kitchen utensils. We will finish the tour with a delicious and warm pan de bono, a pastry made with manioc (cassava) flour and stuffed with salted cheese and guava paste, and a glass of fresh oat milk. That will be the perfect finish for this experience.
