Stroll between Popayan and Silvia, experience a lot of history and soak up the culture of these villages. Popayan, capital of the department of Cauca, called the “White City”, is possibly the most beautiful colonial city in the country. Popayán is also characterized by its religious fervor, particularly during Easter Week, as well as its gastronomy. Silvia, located about 60km from Popayán, is a pleasant little town where numerous indigenous communities meet on Tuesdays, the market day. On this trip you will get to know a typical Colombia, colorful farmers market!
