Candelaria, the place where the devil shows up to dance.

28 Kilometers away from Cali is Candelaria, a town of flat and green lands, a green made of sugarcane. But even closer to the Valley capital, after passing the bridge that goes across the Cauca River is the neighborhood Juanchito. When you get to this place, the stories start to recover life, dressed of salsa passion and “sabor”. The legend tells that the devil used to appear at “Agapito” during the Holy Week, just to dance, this was one of the popular and iconic discos of Juanchito.

That’s how Juanchito became one of the most famous “rumbeaderos” (clubs) of the world. During the XIX and XX century the Cauca River was navigable and this place was the fluvial port of Cali, being an strategic point for the economy but also for the people, who started a musical, ethnical, and cultural revolution influenced by the african legacy, that came along with the workforce.  

Already in Candelaria, one of the most visited and desired attractions are the “rellenas” from “El Piqueteadero Doña María”. During 50 years or more, this has been an official stop for the locals and the visitors who look for the legendary seasoning, promoted by word of mouth.
