LOCATION 11 | La Macarena to Parque Nacional
The large building on your left is the Torre Colpatria. Pause for a moment while I tell you about it.
Its one of the landmark icons of the city, and the country. For many years it was the tallest building of Colombia. That distinction now goes to the BD Bacatá, which you can see to your left in the distance.
The Colpatria has a very modern LED lightning system. This turns it into a giant light show at night. Its quite a spectacle to watch. On weekends you can go up to the roof and enjoy the views from the top. I highly recommend visiting it.

When you're ready to move on, turn to your right and make your way to the stairs that lead you back down to the street. Then continue walking, keeping the mountains on your right.
