Bacat was the center of the Muiscan civilization until 1538, when Gonzalo Jimnez de Quesada colonized the area and named it Santa Fe de Bacat. The city
became the capital of the Kingdom of Granada, part of the Viceroyalty of Peru, and changed its name to Bogot.
It took the citizens of Bogot almost ten years to get their independence from Spain. They revolted in 1810, but they returned to Spanish control in 1816. Finally in
1819, Simn Bolvar liberated the city and it became the capital of Grand Colombia, which included modern Colombia, Ecuador, Panama, and Venezuela.
