Iglesia de San Antonio, Cali

4.4
#1 of 6 in Historic Sites in Cali
Humble in appearance, with whitewashed walls and bold rust-colored accents, Iglesia de San Antonio serves as a testament to 18th-century architecture. Completed in 1747, the building was the result of a community-funded project. The interior reveals curved details around the altar and balustrade, a nod to the Baroque style. Simple design elements are contrasted by brick features, including the steeple and bell tower with a distinct Moroccan Almohad flavor. The church remains very much a focal point of the community, so you can often find local vendors and storytellers populating its lawns.

    Access is difficult for anyone who has difficulty getting around and on the way there were young people using drugs. The Church was closed and only visited by outside.

    For those who enjoy art and tradition is a good place to meet and sit for a moment in the past where early in the morning of winter you can see and feel the soft mist on your feet with a spectacular view of the city. Recommended to be very careful with personal objects and watch everything around

    Very historical, beautiful colonial church (second oldest in the city). Beautiful place to visit late afternoon. The park in front is a great place to just hang out and enjoy the views. Lots of good restaurants nearby.

    A good place to take your loved one and save money. I just saved money.

    Surrounded by a relaxing ambience in the morning and by really great storytellers in the night on weekends. A very good place to be from where you can catch an awesome view of the city at night.
