A big cat at Cali River - Gato Tejada Oct 23, 2009
In the west part of the city near the traditional San Antonio area and next to the Cali River, there's a big sculpture of a cat: El Gato Tejada or Gato del Rio.

I was checking a map of attractions in San Antonio area and saw a small drawing of a cat. It looked fun and cool, so I wanted to go there.

It's located on a park next to Cali River. I didn't know what to expect and found fun finding a 3,5m high cat, hahaha. But he wasn't alone, there were other cats (much smaller) next to it. A couple of years ago, they started an exhibition called the girlfriends of the Gato Tejada. There are several cats, each of them with a different name and decorated by local artists in a different style. You can see a "star", an injured, a prisoner, etc.

Having this park next to the river is a good idea. It's nice to have a place to walk in the middle of an area with heavy traffic. Nice place to take a walk and relax
