The homes in this traditional and historic sector, located near the city center, stand out for their spaciousness and lush gardens. Jewish, Lebanese, Turkish and German migrants who fled World War II lived here for many years, alongside political personalities and the Bogota elite; famous artists, as well as students and foreigners, live in these houses today. Teusaquillo is an artsy district, with a strong theater tradition.
