Stay on the left side of the fork and continue walking.
You're now entering the Barrio la Merced, one of the iconic neighborhoods in Bogotá.
The houses here date from the 1930s and 40s and were built in the English Tudor style. They were built by and for the wealthy. Over time, most of the inhabitants eventually moved to more exclusive areas, away from the city center. Many of these houses are now offices for national institutions and companies.
