Top Colombia


Amid a flat landscape, where small-leafed trees and cacti meet the blue-green sea, is the small village of Manaure. Northeast of Riohacha, it is called La Novia Blanca (White Bride) of Colombia, for the important salt flats that have been exploited here since long before the Spaniards arrived to these shores. The main plaza has a sculpture commemorating the salt worker. Manaure’s Catholic church has an impressive mosaic of Wayuu cosmology on its façade.
