The masonry, made from a mixture of lime, sand, molasses and beef blood, gave the name to the famous bridge that crosses the El Morro river. This work of engineering was built in the seventeenth century and reflects the colonial era in central Colombia. The stones used for the construction of the Basilica of Our Lady of Monguí were transported across this bridge.
