Hotel del Salto in Columbia (The Haunted Hotel at Tequendama Falls)
The Hotel Del Salto is located near Tequendama Falls on the Bogota River in Colombia. It was opened in 1927 and shut its doors on the 1990s. Some say the hotel is haunted and no one wanted to stay there, others state that the adjoining river was extremely polluted and they had to close. Either way, it has an ghostly feel which makes it a big tourist attraction in the area.
The hotel’s Gothic design is perfectly enhanced by a river and waterfall.
In 1923, the building was constructed as a mansion by the architect Carlos Arturo Tapias, as a symbol of the joy and elegance of the elite citizens of the 20s.
‘The Manison of Tequendama Falls’, as the house was called, was built during the presidency of Pedro Nel Ospina (1922 – 1926). Its exterior features French architecture. The hotel can be reached by train from Bogota for those who want to go and pay it a visit, even though the chance to stay overnight and experience the ghosts for yourself is no longer possible.
Hotel del Salto in Columbia has trees growing through its once-grand rooms. It opened in 1928 to welcome wealthy travelers visiting Tequendama Falls but it closed down in the early nineties.
The Tequendama Falls Museum of Biodiversity and Culture is a museum and mansion in San Antonio del Tequendama, Colombia. The museum overlooks Tequendama Falls on the Bogotá River.
