Popayan

White City

Although an earthquake destroyed much of its architecture in the 1980s, Popayan still possesses an impressive, whitewashed colonial look, second only to Cartagena's. Hometown of seventeen Colombian presidents, Popayan hosts many cultural events and has a rich artistic history. Popayan is in Cauca Department.
