What people are saying:

I stayed in Bogotá, the capital of Colombia, for a few days. The library is a must-visit every day. It is a garden-shaped three-story building surrounded by running water. It is a quiet place for a daze, reading a book, and relaxing for an afternoon. It feels good.

    Fine architecture

    Masterpiece of architect Rogelio Salmona, who always used local bricks for his buildings. The library is located in a beautiful park with lake and nice paths for walking. Good plan for a relaxed day.

    The heart of Bogotá

    Yes, it's just a library (boring!). But the surroundings are more important than the books and even the cool architecture. Walk the building (it's free) and then take a look at the park. If you don't ...

    A true gem

    This library was both a beautiful sight and a respite from the city. It is set in a slight bowl, so that you cannot see the city and it cannot see you. : ) Once inside, you'll hopefully marvel at th...
