In the past it was the seat of large estates, today converted into housing estates and shopping centers.
Usaquén is located in the north of Bogotá. It is a popular place for food lovers. Modern French bistros and cozy garden cafes cluster around Parque de Usaquén, the focal point, while craft breweries and cocktail bars tend to serve late.
On Sundays, people visit the Usaquén flea market, which includes street musicians, puppet shows, gourmet food stalls, and items like handmade jewelry and local coffee beans.
