Cota Mil (La) o Autopista Boyacá
If you take the South side of Cerro El Avila you will find the Boyacá motorway or Cota Mil, which gets its name due to its great height (1000 meters above sea level). It is a modern and fast road that joins the two ends of the Caracas valley. The road has beautiful scenery and panoramic views of the city. The exits are the following, starting from West to East: Avenida Baralt, San Bernardino-Sarriá, Mariperez, Alta Florida, La Castellana, Altamira, Sebucán, Boleíta and El Marques.
During Sunday mornings the Cota Mil is closed so that people can walk, jog, go on bicylce, walk their dogs, etc, in this beautiful avenue that divides the city from the mountain El Avila. From here you have access to different parts of the National Park El Avila where you can go hiking if you dont like to walk on asfalt. You will find plenty of drinks, ice-creams and other refreshing delights on the Cota Mil during Sunday mornings. The best thing of all is the VIEW. You can see all of the city from the Cota Mil, with all its modern structures, its gardens, some old houses with red roof tops and the hills surrounding the East, West and South of the city.
Its a great way to see the city and its free, what else can you ask for!!
