BOGOTÁ- HANDCRAFTS TOUR
Duration: 6 hours
Bring Colombia´s history to your home.
Souvenir, memento, handmade are words that remind us of a marvelous trip in an object. Colombia means color, life, nature and joy and the beautiful handicrafts made by its artisans encompass all of these. Submerge yourself in this tour to get to know the masters that put all that this country is, in their uniquely Colombian mochilas, vases, hats, decorations and ornaments.
Colombia has all kinds of landscapes from the Sierra Nevada, the mountains and valleys shaped by the three mountain ranges, the desserts to the plains and rainforest. All of which have inspired generations of artisans that bring these landscapes to each of our homes in objects made out of all kinds of different materials. Also on these objects you can find the beliefs and way of life of the pre-Hispanic cultures that are part of our heritage, our present and our future.
On our tour visit the main centers for handicrafts in the neighborhoods of Usaquén and la Candelaria where on Sundays and holidays the famous “flea market” is celebrated. You may also want to visit the towns where some of these objects are made, the most well-known being the town of Ráquira.
