POPAYÁN

A vision of mountains, white facades, and tradition in Popayan.

DESCRIPTION

This stunning´white city´ absolutely deserves a visit if you like white colonial architecture and a dash of religious traditions.

 

It is nestled in the green mountains of the Cauca region, offering a set of interesting and diverse activities.

 

Discover the paramó on nature walks and birdlovers can go look for the majestic condors.

 

Adventurous people can climb the Puracé volcano. And, another exceptional activity is to pay a visit to the hotsprings and then cycle back to Popayan, a mostly downhill ride!

 

On Tuesday you cannot miss out on visiting the nearby town of Silvia. That day all the Guambiano people come together to sell and buy products on the market. They do so wearing their gorgeous  traditional clothes.
