Besides being a regular planetarium, it also houses a concert hall that puts on performances of Colombian music. You'll also find a cybercafé thats a good place to enjoy a coffee or snack.
    The planetarium is open Tuesday to Sunday from 10:30 AM to 4 pm.

    The white stone building is the Iglesia de San Diego. It houses beautiful religious art from colonial times.

    On the other side of the building you can find a very prestigious Colombian cuisine restaurant called Casa Vieja, which means Old House. They serve the typical dish of Bogotá, the Ajiaco. Its a combination of different potatoes and chicken. Its mixed with guasca, a herb that gives a distinctive flavor to the dish. Its also served with cream and capers.

    Keep walking straight. You're now entering the area known as Centro Internacional.
