Not feeling the need to compete with either Bogota or Medellin, the third largest city of Colombia has a local flavor all its own. Laid back and secure in its place as a modern city with strong ties to the past, Santiago de Cali is the perfect balance between urbane and relaxed.
Visitors simply must visit the Plaza de Cayzedo, the main square of Cali. Surrounded by tall palm trees and white stone buildings, the square is a monument to local hero Joaquin de Cayzedo y Curero. Cristo Rey (Christ the King) is another local favorite; a white statue 26 meters tall in the Los Andes district of the city. Several rivers also wind through the city on their way to the nearby Pacific Ocean.
Lovers of Spanish colonial and indigenous history will find that Cali offers tons to explore. And lovers of big city offerings like fine dining and coffee won’t be disappointed. By working with a photographer in Cali you’ll walk away with treasured memories forever preserved.
