University City

A pleasant city of about 250,000, Palmira is known for its fine parks and universities. This Colombian college town sits at an altitude of 1,000 m (3,284 ft), which combined with its equatorial location gives it pleasantly warm temperatures year round. The symbol of the city remains its towering pink-hued colonial cathedral, while a giant modern shopping center provides more contemporary diversions. The city sits just 27 km (17 mi) from Cali, making a day trip to Palmira convenient from its larger and more famous neighbor. Use our Colombia travel itinerary maker to arrange your visit to Palmira and any other destinations in Colombia that take your fancy.
