The Holy Week celebrations are very big in Mompós, one of the biggest in the country. During that week a gilded Santo Sepulcro is carried around the streets during the processions. This Santo Sepulcro is kept in Church of San Agustin where it is standing in the back, just inside the doors. There are also statues in the church that are used in the Holy Week processions.
The church was built in the 16th century.
