As well as traffic and shops, this avenue exudes history and tradition from every pore. Unmissable.
Bogota's High Street
Steeped in tradition, history and traffic surge through Carrera 7ª every day. It is the most important street in the city of Bogota. Like a spine, it connects the Julio 20 neighbourhood in the south with the expensive first Chía neighbourhood in the north of the city. Nearly 500 years of history can be studied in this street. Actually, Bogota has developed around this road. This street plays a part in all important celebrations. In fact, you can walk the stretch that runs from Plaza de Bolivar to Calle Real del Comercio; this is a route called the septimazo and it will show you the old city and the most emblematic sites. That said, please take care because the traffic is very heavy and drivers in Bogota do not always respect traffic lights and road signs.
