Popayán is called the White City of Colombia due to its religious tradition, and the whitewashed appearance of the buildings. At one time it was even the capital of national government.
This town is famous worldwide for the processions that take place during Semana Santa, or Holy Week. Popayán has even been declared by UNESCO: an intangible Heritage of Humanity.
Experience the cathedrals, squares, museums and beautiful colonial-style churches with their white facades made of chalk. Feel the magic of the city with its small streets and discover why it is considered one of the oldest and most well-preserved historical centers in all of Latin America.
