no, this isn’t some sort of quasi-poetic allegory, or sophomoric metaphor. The road to Monserrate – really is a path, or more accurately, the stairs to Monserrate. Monserrate is a popular tourism destination in Bogotá: a church set high on the Mountain above the bustling city. Despite the religious themes, Monserrate appeals to the faithful and the agnostic alike – due to the impressive and expansive views of the valley below.
Traditionally, pilgrims climbed to the top of Monserrate on a worn-down path. A train and a cable car also served to bring travelers, and tourists to the top of Monserrate.
The new upgrades to the footpath have just been completed – making the walkway more accessible to visitors.
