Overview of the tour in Cali

Walk through the historic center of Cali so that you can understand the importance of the cultural legacy that our 3 ethnic groups have left in us, knowing the characteristics of our gastronomy, the local slang, and the voices of the Pacific coast.

Meet us at "La Merced Church" where we'll pass in front of the Calima's Gold Museum to understand the historical starting point where the city of Santiago de Cali originated and whose socioeconomic development since the 17th century explains the modern dynamics that make visible the current impact of a culture diverse in customs and expressions.

We will show you both sides of the coin: we will talk about the importance of soccer and Salsa in our society, but at the same time about the impact, incidence, and consequences of drug trafficking in our daily lives. Identify the culture of Valle del Cauca from gastronomy to the revolutionary behavior that we carry in our blood thanks to our history and anticultural resistance movements so you get a real, complete, and objective perspective about us!

Join us, learn and dance to the rhythm of the Sultana del Valle!
