The Easter celebrations that have been held in Mompox since 1564 have yet to lose their luster. Processions loaded with religious images fill the streets of the town to remember the passiondeath, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and the locals (referred to as momopsinos) decorate these images with touching fervor.
NEARBY ATTRACTIONS AND ACTIVITIES
Walking the streets and admiring the colonial architecture of its buildings, learning about the art of filigree gold and exploring nearby swamps are among the plans for travellers to Mompox.
