Holy Week

Holy Week in Popayán has been the country's largest religious celebration since 1566. The processions were declared as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO in 2009. They attract thousands of visitors, who are fascinated by the rigor and solemnity of the participants, who carry figures representing the Passion of Christ on their shoulders.
