Puente del Humilladero Reviews
Built in the 1850s to link the center to the northern parts of town where many poor people were living. Keep in mind that the design of many Spanish colonial cities was based on apartheid principles..... more »
Nice looking bridge with cobbled walkway on it but no river below it.Do not know the history of it so cant say much more. more »
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
