Parque Artesanal Loma de la Cruz, Cali

4.0
#6 of 19 in Sightseeing in Cali
Landmark Tourist Spot
Brightly colored kiosks brimming with traditional, handmade goods and whimsical art installations greet you at Parque Artesanal Loma de la Cruz. The park bears a resemblance to Gaudi's in Barcelona, with its wavy lines and imperfect design. It's not uncommon to encounter live folk music, puppets, and outdoor entertainment below the shade of the draping trees. Since opening in 1990 the park has served as an organized market where local artisans sell their handmade goods. Popular souvenir items include dreamcatchers, jewelry, sandals, and purses. Our Cali trip itinerary builder makes visiting Parque Artesanal Loma de la Cruz and other Cali attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

Where to stay in Cali

A huge selection of hostels and mid-range hotels make Cali one of the area's most tourist-friendly destinations, offering plenty of comfortable and affordable rooms for every budget and style. Visitors with deeper pockets generally go for the city's five-star hotels, most of which feature swimming pools and fitness facilities, and offer sweeping views from their rooftop bars. Rental apartments in and around Cali provide perhaps the best option for travelers on longer stays, offering extra space and lots of modern amenities.
