San Francisco religious complex
The Mudejar Tower and the San Francisco Church are two landmarks in Cali.
A tower, a convent, a church, a chapel and a museum in the same place; yes that’s right. And if you add to this, an impressive mixture of architectural styles, a walk to the San Francisco religious complex is an absolute must during your stay in the city. This is an area where the Capilla de la Inmaculada, with its attractive pale green façade, is a perfect counterpoint to the Mudejar Tower, perhaps the most important example of this style in the entire American continent: it is 23 metres high, and its roof is covered with a selection of green and blue tiles. However, without a doubt, the jewel in the crown is the beautiful church after which the complex is named, the San Francisco Church, which boasts an elegant neo-Classical style. The marked contrast between the exterior and interior of the church is remarkable, to say the least.
