A brief history about Bogotá
Founded in 1538 by the Spaniards under the name of Santa Fe de Bogota, it is one of the three highest capitals in the world. This territory was inhabited by the famous Colombian tribe called “The Muiscas”. The natives had large amounts of gold, which represented the main motive of colonization for the Spaniards. It was in Bogota where the first airport in Latin America was built. Also, in the twentieth century, the first large-scale energy plant was created along with other major constructions such as the Stadium and the National Park. Shortly, the capital became an economic powerhouse and business center for Colombia.
