La Candelaria Bogotá

La Candelaria is the historical and cultural heart of Bogotá and a great place to wander. I spent two days here, and visited the Museo Botero, which houses paintings, drawings and sculptures donated by the Colombian artist Fernando Botero. Botero's paintings and sculptures are of exaggerated proportions, informed by a Colombian upbringing and woven with a social commentary.

Next door I visited the Museo Arte Banco de la Republica, the bank's art collection, and admired another Olga de Amaral wall hanging.
