I do not understand why this place is not popular, maybe the owners do not publish/advertise this place as much as it deserves. I went with my childs (5 and 3) and we could see planes, cars, we could play in a real helicopter (not in so good conditions, but anyhow, an helicopter) and at the end, we could see... More

A small but attractive church. The museum is adjacent but seems to open at 10am so I was unable to visit. No problems going inside the church though.

Not only is the oldest church, but it is located in the oldest part of the Cali. We often stayed at the Hotel La Merced, just to the north of the church. The last time we were there the hotel was closed. But do stay there if you get the chance. This church is within walking distance of the Hotel... More

The church is the most interesting part of the place. I wanted to go inside just to see the beautiful courtyard with beautiful fontain. There is not much spectacular inside the museum.

We stopped by to see this old church. Reminded me of the mission churches in California. We were able to tour the museum - small but rich with artifacts. Worth a visit if you have time, but not if time is tight.
