Jovita was a popular character in Cali's tales, this monument pays tribute to her and among a busy area gives a touch of folklore to Cali.

Although the Statue of Jovita is not in the prettiest of places in the city, the staue offers a homage to the legend of Jovita. Part of the "enjoyment" of stopping by the statue is knowing the legend which holds the carácter of Jovita. Many locals are still alive who witnessed her charm and gracefulness with which she greeted all strangers and brushed off the criticism of the most elite as she participated in local parades and events poising herself as a beauty queen dressing in a most awkard and excentric manner often carrying a large hand bag. When a woman in Cali over dresses or carries a large handbag even the most young cannot help themselves to make comments attributing them to the excentric tastes of Jovita!
This place may be a stop on your way to "la Loma de la Cruz" or "la loma de San Antonio".
I stopped there and later went to eat Cholados @ a local gourmet-cholados place @ "el parque del Perro" in San Fernando. The cholados you eat there are definitely the best in the city!! You will also find hanging on the walls a homage to different characters of the city's history and amusingly lies a carbón drawing of Jovita with her complete legend, historical data and all included!
