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.

    The square is not very big and there's nothing very special. You can see the old architecture. You can pass since it is beside the river Boulevard. A couple of photos and nothing more. It is very dirty and careless. It could be a much more attractive tourist spot.

    Plaza de Cayzedo is the starting point of the development of the city, in its built around the houses of the wealthiest inhabitants of Cali, quickly becoming the main centre of trade of the city during its early years. Visit is to delve into the idiosyncrasies of Valle del Cauca, and Cali.
