... Great new country to add to my collectionツ... Colombia has many historical and archaeological sites.... Monserrate hills has always been one of the most visited places of Bogotá ... a well known landmark... the "Funicular" climbs the mountain using a rail system... this train-like car takes you through a tunnel inside the mountain and allows a closer look at the vegetation that grows at different altitudes.... from the top of the hill you have spectacular views of the capital and surrounding areas... Thanks a lot Hernan!!【ツ】
