Usaquén is one of the most traditional quarter of Bogotá and is located in the north-east of the city. In the 16th century it was actually a suburb of Bogotá, but with the fast increase it got one of the various quarters of Bogotá. But the former suburb could keep their exclusivity and the small and picturesque alleys lent itselves to a calm and nice walks and offers a totally different atmosphere, than the lively main Shoppingroads, further south in Bogotá. A bunch of restaurants, bars and shops are seated here and let you feel to walk through a southeuropean city, also concerning the prices. Usaquén is also the business district of Bogotá and unites the building in colonial with the modern skyscrapers.
