  • Visit the center of the city of Cali, in the middle of the movement that characterized the center of all our cities, walking in the midst of buildings, I suddenly stumbled across a church of colonial appearance, its architecture contrasts with the predominantly is of buildings and landscape representing the commercial and modern part of the city. We must note that the altarpiece of the Chapel is very similar to the convent of la popa in Cartagena.

  • It's a interesting Museum for archaeological works, but no big deal there. If you have little time to stay in town, you can leave it as the background. There are other much better to visit. Admission is 6000 weights and does not have many works there.

  • It is the few ancient buildings preserved in Cali, near the Center. It is quite small, but pretty well.
