Iglesia San Francisco, Cali

4.5
#3 of 11 in Historic Sites in Cali
The oldest colonial building in the city and one of the sturdiest, Iglesia San Francisco has weathered a number of heavy earthquakes since its construction in 1586. Look out for the intricate carving of the Virgen del Socorro on the main altar, brought to the city in 1540 by the founder of Santiago, Pedro de Valdivia, from his conquistador mission. History buffs should appreciate the attached museum dedicated to colonial-era art. It should be noted that no photography or video-making of the church is permitted. Iglesia San Francisco is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Cali Edition.

  • While on a walking tour of downtown Cali, this proved to be one of the most interesting buildings. The architecture shows the influence of the Spanish and the Moors!  more »
  • Beautiful union between the ecclesiastical art and the life of the city, went for the day of the Pacific at the fair of Cali and the experience is great, there is respect, friendliness and culture
