Bogotá is the capital and largest city of Colombia. In terms of land area, Bogotá is the largest city in Colombia, and one of the biggest of Latin America. Tour de France may be the celebrity-studded bicycling event in the world, but it is in Bogota where serious North American cyclists go to circumnavigate Ciclovia, a cycling route stretching an impossible 300 kilometers. Rising on a vast plain 2,600 meters above sea level, Bogota has proved itself to be one of the most significant Latin American cities in preserving Ibero-American culture without missing a step towards commerce and urbanization. The city’s eight million inhabitants want for nothing in the way of entertainment, dining and nightlife. And yes, even transport. The city’s transit network serves as a blueprint to other cities in Colombia and in South America. It stands to reason then that Bogota’s tourist infrastructure is equally world-class, something visitors would expect from a city with cosmopolitan appeal. With its many universities and libraries, Bogotá has become known as "The Athens of South America". Bogotá owns the largest moorland of the world, which is located in the Sumapaz Locality.
