After breakfast at the hostel (COP 5,000), we headed out to explore Popayan for all the sights it has to offer.
 

Popayán

Some of the best sights of this white city is the… city itself! Just walking around the alleys gives you a sense of the colonial architecture. Here’s a rundown of all the sights we explored:

  • Iglesia de San Francisco
  • Iglesia La Ermita
  • Universidad del Cauca for its colonial premises
  • Puente del Humilladero, a long walking bridge over a river in Popayán that was constructed in old Roman style.
  • Parque de Caldas, which is the central square.
  • Belen, which is perched on top of a small hill overlooking Popayán.
