La ciudad Blanca

Manuel Benavides, Colombia

Today, I am going to talk about my home city, Popayán. I will show you our culture,typical food and our main traditions.

Popayán, la ciudad blanca (y deliciosa) de Colombia

Popayán is a small city in the south of Colombia. It is one of the oldest cities in Latin America as well with almost 500 years since it was founded. We have a religious and traditional culture inherited from Spain, but also a mix of them between black and native people. This city has been my home my whole life and I am so glad for that.
