Iglesia de la Merced is the Cali's oldest church, laid in 1545, just nine years after the founding of the city. It's a lovely whitewashed building in the Spanish colonial style. A beautiful exterior hides rather simple interior of wood and stucco containing a long, narrow nave. It has a heavily gilded baroque high altar is topped by the Virgen de las Mercedes, the patron saint of the city.
In the same complex, in the former La Merced convent, you'll find the Museo Arqueológico La Merced.
The church is open from 06:30am-10:00am and 04:00pm-07:00pm; admission by donation.
Address: corner of Carrera 4 and Calle 7
