Monumento de las Tres Cruces - Monument Cali - Colombia

Standing at 1,500 meters (4,921 ft) above sea level, the three crosses that comprise this high-altitude monument were constructed in 1837. Every May 3 (Colombia’s Labor Day), caleños climb to the top of this hill to pay homage to Santa Cruz and to celebrate their city’s independence from Spain. There’s a good view of the city from the top. An interesting fact to keep in mind is that the center cross is 26 meters (85 ft) tall and 22 meters (72 ft) wide.

Location:
Cali, Colombia

Getting There

You can safely walk to the monument on a path from barrio Normandía, or simply flag one of the taxi jeeps marked “Las Cruces,” which shuttle sightseers to and from Normandía Plaza and the monument.
