I agree with the previous reviewer. Dirty big square located in the downtown area of Cali. Vendors and shady characters around. Worth a quick stop to see some of the buildings but don't stay long and hold onto valuables.

This square is dirty and full of people trying to sell something. The original concept with palmas is very nice.

For once the main square of this Colombian city is not named after Simon Bolivar, but after a local celebrity Joaquin de Cayzedo. Not as radical as Bolivar and Santander as he strived for the autonomy of the city and remained loyal to the Spanish crown till the very end. He was executed by Royalists in Pasto in 1813.

Remarkable are the tall palm trees on the square providing at least some shade. Around are many historic buildings and there are always many people from different walks of life. Of course many vendors selling food and other stuff.

While Plaza de Caicedo could use some TLC, it is a worthwhile place to visit. Surrounded by retail as well as several small Casinos, there is always a lot of commotion, but it is a great place to visit and take photos. Be on the look-out for pickpockets though.

What a shame, Cali' city centre' main square has been left carelessly to the homeless and robbers after being an architecture icon with plenty of history behind.Disorder and uncleanliness reign there, leave alone the dangers if you venture yourself (you can be easily be the victim of robbers, verbal abuse or just the witness of any crime.Local Govertments has been negligent or permisive to tackle such a problems.

This is probably an strategic location for those interested in visiting historical sites, or for those who want to feel the heart of the city. There are quite a few places of interest nearby, including the Cali River, museums, theaters, restaurants, etc.

This is the major plaza in Cali. It was probably beautiful in it's heyday but now too tarnished. Went to mass at the cathedral which is on the corner of the square and found nothing but empty, grimy buildings and sleeping homeless. Would not feel comfortable here by myself. A few minutes walking around the area was enough. Nothing to compare to Plaza Caldas in Popayan.
