Museo de Arte Religoso La Merced

Museum in Cali

Housed in La Merced convent, Cali's oldest building, this museum has an extensive collection of colonial religious paintings and relics. It's worth a visit even if religious art is not your thing, just to check out the charming 16th-century structure and its three internal courtyards.

If you go on weekday mornings you can watch the nuns making hostia (Communion bread).
