BOGOTA | Museo Casa de Moneda in Bogota’s La Candelaria neighbourhood focuses on Colombian currency and is home to the country’s Colección Numismática. The museum was founded in 1621 as the city’s mint, and today takes visitors through the history of money in Colombia. The museum starts with pre-Columbian exchanges of household and everyday items through to the design and production of modern banknotes and coins in use today.

It’s a small museum that forms part of the larger complex of museums housed in the city’s former colonial-era Central Bank building, such as Museo Botero. Not all of the information panels have English translations at the moment, but a project is currently being undertaken to upgrade all displays to be bilingual.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
