Popayán

the country. It was founded in 1827 by decree of General Francisco de Paula Santander. Its motto is Posteris Lumen Moriturus Edat. Since the beginning of the twentieth century, the main headquarters have been placed in the old convent of the Dominican Order, cloister which is one of the best examples of religious architecture (Sacred architecture) in the city. Clock Tower Called “the nose of Popayán” by Master Guillermo Valencia, the clock tower is a well known symbol of the city. It was constructed next to the Cathedral church between 1673 and 1682 with 96 thousand bricks. The clock, made in England, was placed in 1737. Its mechanism operated by the action of two lead weights which were changed by Antonio Nariño in the Colombia independence dispute in 1814, when metal was required to manufacture ammunition. thumb 200px Humilladero Bridge (Image:El Humilladero.jpg) After the earthquake of 1983, the clock was restored and put back in operation by the same English company that manufactured it, but it stopped working a long time ago. Humilladero Bridge This bridge connects the central and northern zones of the city. It was built in 1873 on arches of brick and masonry. The designs were prepared by the Italian friar Fray Serafin Barbetti and a German engineer whose mummified remains are preserved in the Archdiocesan Museum of Religious Art in the city. The bridge crosses a fault between the city center and the El Callejón (now Bolivar) neighborhood which was previously extremely difficult to cross, requiring pedestrians to almost crawl on their knees. Accordingly the new bridge was named ''Humilladero''. For a long time this bridge was one of the main entrances to the city. The liberating armies crossed it to enter Popayán during the early stages of the struggle for Colombia independence. Its well-planned design and strong construction has allowed the bridge to remain intact through many earthquakes.

In particular it stands out its altar carved in wood and covered in gold, its expository baroque (Baroque architecture) made in silver and a beautiful image of the Lady of Sorrows (Our Lady of Sorrows). La Ermita It is the oldest church in the city and sometimes it served as “Pro Tempore” Cathedral. It dates from 1546 and contains a fine altar discovered after the earthquake of 1983.

To arrive to this church, it is necessary to pass through the “quingos", a road of stone steps that allow a nice climb to one of the viewpoints of the city. Since 1717 this chapel is in charge of the image of Santo Ecce Homo, patron saint of the city. Next to the church there is a cross of quarry stone of 1789, which are attributed to many legends. The original church was completely replaced by a new structure after the earthquake of 1983.

Since roughly the mid-sixteenth century - documents in the historical archives of Popayán mention processions in the year 1558 - sacred processions have taken place each night from Tuesday until Holy Saturday, with ancient religious images paraded through Popayán's historical downtown streets. They are borne on wooden platforms by means of 4 projecting wooden "bars" at the front and 4 at the back. These bars rest on the shoulders of the “Cargueros”, as those responsible for carrying the platforms are known. "Easter processions are representations of different episodes narrated in the Gospels, on the Passion, Crucifixion (Crucifixion of Jesus) and Death of Jesus Christ (Jesus), where each one of these representations is called "Paso". Since the time of the conquest the pasos have been carried through the streets on the shoulders of the traditional 'cargueros' in a route shaped like a cross, which takes in the main churches and temples of the city. During Holy Week, Popayán is also home to the Festival de Música Religiosa (Religious Music Festival), begun in the 1960s on the initiative of Edmundo Mosquera Troya. This festival presents choirs, soloists and artists from around the world, specialists in sacred music.

It is expected that A-70 will be extended westward to at least Alma (Alma, Quebec) and eastward to La Baie (La Baie, Quebec). A new alignment has already been determined for the westernmost section of A-70, and the central section (currently part of Route 170 (Quebec Route 170)) is already a 4-lane divided highway; service roads would need to be constructed as it is not limited access. The proposed route for the eastern section has also been determined. History The A-70 was originally designed to provide a limited-access highway link between Alma (Alma, Quebec) and La Baie (La Baie, Quebec). The autoroute has been built in increments since the early 1980s. It took nearly ten years for the first eight kilometers to be built. During the 1990s, highway planners modified the plans. Rather than building A-70 to parallel Route 170 (Quebec Route 170) between 8e Rang in Saint-Bruno (Saint-Bruno, Quebec) (km 5) and St-Benedict Road (km 25), instead Route 170 was rebuilt as a four-lane divided highway. This extension of A-70 was completed by 1999. Three years later, an additional 17 kilometers were opened, connecting this rebuilt section of Route 170 with the original portion of A-70. * '''CYBF''' - Bonnyville Airport - Bonnyville (Bonnyville, Alberta), Alberta * '''CYBG''' (YBG) - CFB Bagotville (Bagotville Airport) - Bagotville (La Baie, Quebec), Quebec * '''CYBK''' (YBK) - Baker Lake Airport - Baker Lake (Baker Lake, Nunavut), Nunavut

In rural areas, the monastic (monastery) architecture of monks' orders had a major influence on the development of brick architecture, especially through the Cistercians and Premonstratensians.
