    Mompox, the magical village of 100 years of solitude.

    The District of Santa Cruz de Mompox is located in the department of Bolivar, on the western part of one of the arms of the Magdalena River, considered as a National Monument and UNESCO World Heritage site of Colombia.

    Here you will find several churches of baroque architecture and visit craftsman workshops reputed for the finest jewelery in silver filigree.
    Mompox plays a fundamental role in Colombia’s history since it was the first city to declare its independence against Spain.
    For the lovers of Gabriel García Márquez, it is a magical city since it is often compared to Macondo, the fictional city where "100 years of solitude" takes place.
