Santa Cruz de Mompox Historical Center:
The urban growth of Mompox, located in the department of Bolivar, was always limited by the Magdalena River (Not around of a main central park, as many other Spanish towns). After the flow of the Magdalena Rived changed in the 19th century, the communication and exchange from Mompox to other towns was very difficult. This isolation made it easy to maintain all the historical heritage of the place. This is one of the reasons why it was included into the list of World Heritage in 1995.
