Bogotá is the capital of Colombia. The city is located in the center of Colombia, on a high plateau known as the Bogotá savanna, part of the Altiplano Cundiboyacense located in the Eastern Cordillera of the Andes. It is the third-highest capital in South America (after Quito and La Paz), at an average of 2,640 metres above sea level. Bogotá is home to the largest number of universities and research centers in the country and is an important cultural center, with many theaters, libraries and museums, of which the Museo del Oro is the most important. Bogota wheelchair access is very limited as this is a relatively poor country. Poverty in Bogota is caused by the serious problem of maldistribution of income. This city is one of the most unequal Latin American countries in terms of wealth distribution.
