The Church of San Antonio without doubts is one of the most representative pieces of Colonial architecture in Santiago de Cali. In 1997, thanks to its perfect and emblematic construction, it was declared a National Monument.
The exterior stairs give way to the details of this masterpiece, a simple construction with a roof supported by exposed rustic beams. The sound of the bells is housed in a tower made of brick in sight, adjoining a beautiful arch that supports a large wooden door with two parts that reveal the idyllic image of San Antonio de Padua.
It is important to recognize that the San Antonio neighborhood gives this chapel a special atmosphere that makes its only presence illuminate the landscape, allowing that a walk through the neighborhood can become a discovery of the history of the colony.
How to get there?
The church is in the San Antonio neighborhood, located at the west of Cali. It is enough to cross the Calle 5 at the height of the Carrera 4. You should walk on the hill of the neighborhood, until you find the majestic church at the top.
