Bogota has been shaped by national and international migration. The city's living heritage reflects its diversity and dynamism.
Bogota’s intangible cultural heritage is built with the knowledge of its glassmakers and stone carvers. It's seen and heard in marketplaces where men and women exchange their knowledge of herbs. It's tasted in the diverse flavors of Colombia's regional cuisines, and lived in religious and popular fairs and festivals, which carry the culture of ethnic and peasant communities. It flourishes in the crops of urban farmers working towards a sustainable lifestyle within the city.
