Top Colombia


To visitors and locals alike, Mompós represents an older, forgotten colonial Colombia. It is a city of tradition, family ties, and a mix of García-Márquian myth and religious piety. The culture remains largely untouched by the conflict found throughout the rest of the country.

Two hundred kilometers (124 mi) east of Cartagena, this island town is difficult to reach. However, it is well worth the effort.Colonial Mompós has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1995. It is comprised of three long, whitewashed streets, which run parallel to the Magdalena River. Mompós’ stifling heat and backwater status do not create the most favorable place for tourists. However, anyone interested in colonial Colombia and the European Diaspora, or in observing one of Latin America’s most austere Semana Santa celebrations, should consider a visit.


Other places nearby Mompós: Puerto Berrío and Barrancabermeja.
