Walking Through Bogotá's Central Cemetery

Bogotá's Central Cemetery is a hidden gem worth visiting, serving as a final resting place for presidents, poets, revolutionary leaders and ordinary citizens. Up until the 19th century it was customary to bury the dead inside the city's churches, a tradition outlawed by Simón Bolívar in 1827. Nine years later Bogotá's Central Cemetery was inaugurated, and in 1984, it was declared a National Monument. If you're not sure where to start, follow this link for a guided route provided by the city of Bogotá (Spanish only). More photos from today's visit can be found on my Flickr page. The cemetery can be reached easily via public transport. Take the Transmilenio to station 'Calle 26' and walk acros
