Bogota, Colombia - Plaza Bolivar Classical Spanish Colonial Architecture

Bogota, Colombia – Looking from Plaza Bolivar, in the Andean capital city of Bogota in the South American country of Colombia, to one corner of the principal square of the City. To the right is a section of the building that is the official place of business for both houses of parliament: the Senate and the Congress. To the left is a section of the Archbishop’s palace. Through the gap between the buildings, the Mayor School of San Bartolomé, the building with the dome, can be seen. Originally a University established by the Jesuits in 1604, it is currently a Secondary school. In the middle of the plaza, is a statue of Simon Bolivar. People both local and tourists walk across the Square as they go about their daily work or explore the area. There are pigeons all over the square, and vendors sell grains to visitors to feed the pigeons.
