Iglesia San Francisco, Cali
(4.5/5 based on 70+ reviews on the web)
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. Plan your visit to Iglesia San Francisco and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Cali trip generator.

  • Such a beautiful and historic site to visit at night! Loved the experience!
  • Facing the Interior of the Valley this Iglecia is an icon of Cali, its construction and architecture contrasts with the modern buildings that surround it, recommended to visit it. In front of it is the square known by the same name of the Iglecia where there are a large number of pigeons which are fed by photographers and visitors
