Take a stroll under the shade of tall trees in the heart of Cali at Plaza de Caicedo. Paved paths lead to the center of the square, where you'll find a statue of Joaquín de Cayzedo y Cuero, the hero of independence of Valle, placed here in 1913. Historical neoclassical buildings surround the plaza, including the federal court, the Otero building, and a grand cathedral from which, according to legend, St. Peter once woke up ringing the bells to the people of the town.

  • To be the central square of Cali, it is not very special or cozy. Even though it has a cathedral and other emblematic buildings, is not the place to be or to be meeting point as if the central squares in many cities of Colombia and the world. It is nothing special but it is close to trade, theatres and the Boulevard of the river.

  • Just stop and sit on a bench. It is a nice place to watch people and to get an impression of the diversity of people visiting Cali. Nothing special.
