San Antonio - Culture And Arts Cali - Colombia

Cale├▒os often wonder why it is that tourists like to wander through their calm streets lined with colonial houses and eclectic bars. Why is it that visitors to their fine city would prefer to stroll up to the shady park where couples neck and in the evening, enjoy a breeze that blows over the hill from the Pacific, delivering a cooling wind onto the tiled rooftops of this barrio? You tell me!

San Antonio is Cali's boho colonial center. Across the road and up the hill from the museums its streets are lined with small and independent theaters, interesting cafes and artists workshops. At night Cale├▒os come to the park that sits beneath the San Antonio Chapel, constructed in 1747, and enjoy the breeze and occasionally relaxing music up here while watching the sparkling lights of Cali at night.
