Urban Arts Scene: Bogotá, Colombia

36 of 52

For a more urban—but also exotic—experience, head south to
the capital of Colombia, Bogotá, which some say is poised to become the next Buenos Aires. Bogotá’s historic center is La Candelaria, where the recently reopened Museo
del Oro
now houses a 6,500-piece collection of pre-Columbian gold coins
and other works of art. And at the nearby Fernando
Botero Museum
, you’ll find more than a hundred sculptures and paintings
by the artist. In the Zona Rosa district, the Sofitel
Bogotá Victoria Regia
is a 102-room property near the city’s art
galleries. Doubles from $340.
