Gabriel García Márquez Cultural Center Tours

Gabriel García Márquez Cultural Center
Located in the historic neighborhood of La Candelaria in downtown Bogotá, the Gabriel García Márquez Cultural Center is a modern addition to the area, having opened its doors in 2008. The center naturally pays homage to Colombia's most famous author from which it takes its name, but in fact hosts a whole range of cultural events that is not limited to purely literature. The complex features an auditorium, a temporary exhibitions space, an expansive bookstore, a restaurant, and a Juan Valdez cafe.

In order to get a good sense of Bogota’s history and culture, many choose to visit the Gabriel García Márquez Cultural Center as part of a La Candelaria and Monserrate walking tour, which also incorporates the attractions of the Plaza de Bolívar and Chorro de Quevedo, as well as including a trip to the summit of Mount Monserrate for sweeping views across the city.
