Came here on the night that I arrived in Cali And it is really nice sculptures! I love the scenery and all the different types of cats and it was really cool that they have different background stories. Something else, but do recommend it

If you can read some Spanish or if you like cats, this small exhibit is worth your time. If not, you may not appreciate the meaning behind the art.

Original collection of cats beautiful statues. Each one has its own name and history. Wether you love cats or not, it is one of the artistic symbols of the city of Cali and it is free, so just just go for it! At worse it will only be a short walk in the shade along the river, nothing bad...

Just in front of El Peñon and just across the Colombia Avenue, you must stop and observe this master piece of sculture, a black cat stand over the river bank. behind there are a wine bar and also a jazz place, and pizza shop, all you need to enrich your soul and body

It's something you can visit in 4 minutes sharp. A bunch of "artistic" cat sculptures by many artists. In a green area next to a noisy high trafficked street. However you won't find much more to see in Cali, so enjoy it slowly!

This is a great place to stop by in Cali. Specially after they put the female cats, the place got a much better looking. It is safe, relaxing and cultural.
