Historical and cultural center

The Hotel de la Opera is located in La Candelaria, next to the Cristobal Colon Theater, in front of Palacio San Carlos, currently headquarters of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, one block from Bolivar Square and a fifteen minutes walk to the funicular for Monserrate hill.

Thanks to its strategic location, our guests can easily visit the most characteristic places of the city, for example the Gold Museum, Botero Museum, Primary Cathedral, etc. Also, many important government buildings are nearby.

Walking its roads you will become part of its stories, legends and myths which are preserved in each of its buildings. Questions like, why do the houses have doors of two meters? Where did Manuelita Saenz live her idyll with Simon Bolivar? Which is the window through which Simon Bolivar escaped? These are just some examples of the cultural treasures that you will find in La Candelaria.
