  • This cafe is the first stop and meeting point
  • Avenida Jimenez
    After the market, you will walk towards Avenida Jimenez and 7th Avenue, where you will start to get a clear idea of the initiation of the political conflict and learned what happened during the riots of Bogotazo in 1948. You will visit Santander Plaza, the San Francisco church, Jorge Eliecer Gaitan´s memorial and view the eclectic architecture of the city center. Walking along 7th Avenue towards Plaza Bolivar as you get a better understanding about Colombia´s troublesome history.
  • Museo Nacional de Colombia Fragmentos
    Next, you will head to visit the "counter-monument" Fragmentos built by the artist Doris Salcedo and a group of women who were victims of Colombia's armed conflict.(Gallery closed on Mondays) This artwork was built using the melted rifles of FARC ex-members as raw material and will stay on display during the same amount of years that the armed conflict lasted. Contrary to a common monument this artwork has a very distinctive approach to what a monument should be, represent and feel like.
  • Centro Cultural Gabriel Garcia Marquez
    From Fragmentos you will go back on a short walk towards Selva Nevada, a company dedicated to preserve biodiverse crops throughout Colombia working hand in hand with conflict-vulnerable farmer communities through fair trade and association. The ice-cream here is full of exotic options as well as the traditional flavors. It´s simply delightful.
  • Plaza de Bolivar de Bogota
    Once you arrive to Colombia´s main Plaza, it’s time for a Q&A session. So many things have happened in this location, including the siege of the Palacio de Justicia in 1985, one of the most remembered and bloody episodes of the country. Also, endless number of demonstrations in favor and against the Peace Agreement signing in 2016 and many other events that have marked the current situation of the country.
  • Cerveceria La Trocha / La Casa De La Paz
    (Only Included in the 6 hour tour) La Casa de la Paz, (the House of Peace) is an open for dialogue space owned by former FARC militants who today are members of society. Here, you will also have a chance to meet people from different parts of the country who have been directly affected by conflict, and today they are leaders, artists and owners of different entrepreneurships and you will have the chance to contribute by visiting their craft shop.
