#7 of 19 in Sightseeing in Cali
Landmark Tourist Spot
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.
