Description

From the War of Independence right through its fratricidal conflicts in the 19th century, the War and Peace Bogotá Free Walking Tour takes us deep into Colombia´s most painful history and mysteries of drug trafficking. 

Our English speaking guide will unravel the most ferocious episodes of the War of Independence in front of the Memorial to the Heroes of the Independence. Learn the inns and outs of the famous “Bogotazo”, the incident which leads to the decade known as “La Violencia”, while facing the Jorge Eliecer Gaitán memorial, the assassinated liberal leader.

Our route will lead us on a journey through the most atrocious monuments in the history of Bogotá like the Palace of Justice siege in in 1985 on by M-19 guerrillas and discover the role played by the most famous narco of all times, Pablo Escobar, leader of the Medellín cartel.   

The War and Peace Bogotá Free Walking Tour will lead you into a city that has survived violence, drug trafficking and yet has managed to open new horizons full of hope to its citizens. Today it looks towards a future in the hope that it will all be forgotten but also that it will learn from what it has experienced.
