Humilladero Bridge

 

The 12-arch Humilladero Bridge was built in 1873 by Fray Serafin Barbetti. Its name is derived from the effort the villagers made to climb the slope up to the main plaza of Popayán with heavy loads before the bridge was built; the road was so steep that people often had to climb almost on their knees.
