Visit the cemetery

Renowned for its white tombs decorated with statues of angels surrounded by artificial flowers, it is worth spending a few hours in the cemetery. The graves are stacked on each other forming domes and parlor walls. During Holy Week, the traditional serenade to the dead is celebrated here.

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.
