Proclaimed in 2009 by UNESCO as one of the Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity, the Blacks and Whites’ Carnival, “Carnaval de Negros y Blancos”, is the largest and most important celebration in southern Colombia.

Between December 28 and January 7, the City of Pasto attracts a large number of tourists who want to celebrate this cultural expression.

On January 6, the festivity starts with a magnificent float parade.
