Mompox: Patrimonio Histórico / World Heritage

Santa Cruz de Mompox, una importante ciudad comercial que ahora parece estar atrapado en el tiempo y la humedad, fue fundado en 1537 y nombrado Patrimonio de la Humanidad en 1995 por la UNESCO. Mompox existe en la memoria de Colombia como una isla cargada de historia, que ha presenciado todo desde la Inquisición hasta batallas lideradas por el mismo Bolívar, y que fue olvidada por generaciones y gobiernos.

Santa Cruz de Mompox, once an important commercial hub which now seems to be trapped by the humidity and the slow-moving time, was founded in 1537 and named a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1995. Mompox exists in Colombia’s collective memory as an island steeped in history, an island which has witnessed everything from the Inquisition to battles led by Bolivar himself, and has since been forgotten by governments and generations.
