This church is a jewel standing in the mist of salespersons, food, clerks, a real mess but you can still enjoy the colonial architecture. The church is lovelier on the outside but you can still see the beautiful pieces of religious art inside.

While on a walking tour of downtown Cali, this proved to be one of the most interesting buildings. The architecture shows the influence of the Spanish and the Moors!

A nice old church in the middle of the tourist zone. Old of the oldest in Cali. There is also a large square in front, with pigeons and a fountain.

Nice but smaller than I expected. A lot more busy than the churches in Canada. Stumble upon a mass in midday. Also close to the gold museum and the national theater.

I really liked the interior of this church. It was painted very nicely. There is a large plaza next to it but it has just a couple tiny trees so no shade to speak of.
