  • All them cities of the world have a place tourist represntativo, in Cali I would say that is the monument of the Lord of them crystals (Hill of Christ King) However there are two places iconicos of them last decades, one is the Church of the Hermitage of Jesus of the river and the other the monument cat of Tejada, named so by its sculptor , but it more interesting is that makes years is made a contest between artists plastics of the city to develop a wedding for the cat that was only towards 10 years, in this contest a sculptor recognized called Alejandor Valencia made the model of it wedding is decorated several cats that are surrounding to the cat original and are to your around , the winner between 15 brides was the master Roberto Molano with his cat called bonfire. Brides sometimes are held exhibitions in the city and elsewhere, do not forget to take a picture with the cat and one with each of the brides to his around, then can lotr side of the river and walk downstream a few 500mts more or less (not to get to the tunnel but walking over using the bolulevar of the river) up to the chapel of Jesus of the river Church.
