Church and monastery "La Merced"

La Merced Church is located in the Cali’s historic center. It has the privilege to be the church that officiated the first mass of the city on July 25 of 1536. Its simplicity and sobriety make this Church one of the most beautiful of the city, moreover it is one which have a lot of history behind. This is a colonial complex, which evokes the architecture and style of that time, made up of the chapels of the Virgen de las Mercedes, the Chapel of the Virgen de los Remedios and the Museum of Colonial and Religious Art La Merced. All these buildings are made of stone and clay-based bricks that were joined together with lime, egg shells and blood of animals and slaves. This magnificent and lasting construction was declared a national monument in February of 1975.

The story tells that the image of the Virgen de los Remedios, carved in stone, was found in the bowels of a rock of the prominent mountains of Dagua, on the other hand, the image of Nuestra Señora de La Merced, patroness of Cali, was carved by a Spanish artist. Also, the wooden altar with a Baroque style in which this image is standing is the most resplendent and brilliant of the whole city.

How to get here?

The Church is located on Carrera 4. Using the mass transport (MIO) you can get to this place by taking the “Alimentador” (a little bus) A06, which can be taken outside the San Bosco station. The trip ends at the sixth stop and you will have to walk approximately two minutes to get to the historic complex of La Merced.
