Plaza de Caycedo is the main square and the civic centre of the city. It was named after Cali's hero Joaquin de Cayzedo y Cuero and since its foundation it has been a useful point of reference for other places in the city. The square is fringed by beautiful tall palm trees. It is surrounded by many important historical and modern buildings.
Facing the square is the Catedral, a large three aisle church with clerestory, elaborate aisle niches and stained glass windows. The original church dated from around 1539 and the present building is from the mid 19th century. The Palacio Nacional is on the eastern side of the square, a French neo-classical building, now the city archive. Next to it is Edificio Otero.
Notary publics, hawkers, lottery ticket sellers, food vendors and shoeshine boys among others can be found here offering customers their services.
