Take a stroll under the shade of tall trees in the heart of Cali at Plaza de Caicedo.

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.

  • This outdoor space is a point to get to know him, and not only for being a park with historical content, but by all the context that exists to your around, history, culture, architecture and religion jntas make it very attractive, lack more presence of the State focused on wastes, and itinerant sales, per voucher worth being there and asking who and that made the character of the central bust of the square In addition you can ask about the patron saint of the city and where it is located, so will further more your knowledge of Cali

  • Known as the plaza greater in the time of the colony until 1813 where change the name to square of the Constitution. During this time, the plaza was the epicenter of entertainment and meeting place of the first inhabitants of the city, being also used as market (sale of fresh food). It plaza of Caicedo is considered the point of home of the development of the city, in its around were built them House of them inhabitants more wealthy of the city, turning is quickly in the main center of trade of the city during their first years. Today is the banking and financial core of the city, in its environs is home to many offices, churches, official and private establishments.

  • 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.
