  • A bridge of lime and singing with arcades and a park along the Mill River which flows through the city of Popayán. The Central Mountain range can be regarded a great landscape to the East, with the Hill of three crosses in the foreground, and on clear days. However, is that they have him utmost care, mainly to the little bridge that this impaired.

  • A strong piece of colonial arquitecture used to be the main entrance to the down town. It's a mixture of nature and colonial style perfect to relax, read and walk around.
  • Excellent place to walk and have a picnic. Very safe a secure area during the day. Caution at night as some unsavoury characters were lurking about. Beautifully maintained colonial architecture
  • Beautiful arquitecture
  • Beautiful bridge, beautiful city!
  • A must see in Popayán!
