  • It is good to know a little history, generally there are policemen or guides that you have about it.

  • Ago and a half year I was here. Now I do it with my wife and my daughter. It saddens me to see that every day is most noticeable deterioration and now graffiti damage it and they ruin in its lower arches. I hope people of Popayan most value their heritage sites

  • It was built in 1873 on arches of brick and calicanto, by Fray Serafín Barbetti and a German engineer between the city centre and the alley quarter (what is now the Bolivar district). At the point in which it was built had a hill too steep so people had to climb almost on his knees, hence its name. It functioned as one of the main entrances to the city, is currently a place tourist near the Bank of the Republic library.
