Metropolitan Cathedral Tours

Cali has no shortage of impressive churches, but the grand Metropolitan Cathedral (or Cathedral of San Pedro) stands out from the crowd, with its powder-white façade and trio of domes looming over the busy central square of Plaza de Caicedo. 

Although construction originally started in 1772, the cathedral wasn’t completed until 1841 and was extensively restored in 1930 after being damaged by a series of earthquakes. Today, the Metropolitan Cathedral is most memorable for its ornate, neoclassical design, exquisite stained glass windows and hammered silver altar, as well as housing an important collection of Quito school paintings and a European Walcker Organ.
