  • It is a peaceful place where you can reed a good book, it is a quit place where the people respect your solitary presence, the most of people are focus on relaxing their minds with a good book or only closing their eyes; some couples in love go to have a romantic momento while other friends go to enjoy a moment....
  • Beautiful colonial style bridge that contributes to give popayan its character
