    Go to Popayán is entering a wonderful city, all buildings are white colonial. The bridge is on the shore of the city and crosses under a river. It is very attractive since it is broad. To the side is a House Museum which can also be visited.

    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
