The heart of Chapinero lies between Avenida Caracas and La Septima, and Calle 53 and Calle 67 (roughly), though the greater Chapinero area is much larger. I live in the neighborhood directly to the west, so I spend a lot of my time here. The neighborhood is famous for being Bogotá’s gayest, and is sometimes called ¨ChapiGay¨.
Pulgas is good for a few hours of admiring the creativity of the hand-painted mirrors, personally designed candles, and Beatles pillowcases. It’s kind of like a giant yard sale but cooler and with more or less crap for sale (depending on your perspective).
