“Recommended for the Views of Bogota!”
Reviewed 24 January 2014

Come here for spectacular views of the city and surrounding hills. I found the Salmona designed building a bit over-designed, with several empty spaces that didn't seem to have much life. However, you can climb all over the building and take photos of the views and structure. Plus, the library is next to several large parks which you can visit on the same trip. If you're used to North American libraries, Colombian libraries can seem pretty slim in their collections. However this library hosts some interesting exhibitions and concerts so check out the schedule to plan your visit.
