Usaquén still retains the air of the quiet town it was before being absorbed as a suburb of Bogotá in 1954. On the eastern side of the main square stands the church of Santa Barbara Usaquén, which dates back to the mid-seventeenth century. Walk through the narrow streets around it, buy crafts, and visit local bars and elegant restaurants serving traditional local or international food.
