Long ago the Carrera Séptima, Bogotá’s main avenue, was the place to live for the well-to-do. It was a promenade of elegant homes, reflecting the good life of their owners. Although from a bygone era, Casa Medina still stands like a rock castle in a futuristic city.
Mr. Medina designed the house by mixing ideas from Spanish and French architecture. He was a bird lover, and he contracted an artisan to craft images of birds all throughout the house. You can find them carved into doors, stamped on mosaics, and decorating the beautiful iron handrail on the stairs.
The Casa Medina is wonderful in many ways, and the service is out of this world. They have a terrific breakfast too!
According to the government, more than 70% of these visitors come from the U.S. and South America, and 60% are tourists.
As the capital of Colombia, Bogota is the main recipient of foreign visitors, including both tourists and business travelers.
