Photographer's Note

La Ermita church is a Catholic church located in Santiago de Cali. Originally it was a straw construction from the beginning of the 17th century. The original church was a very simple construction, as are most of the old constructions in the Valle del Cauca. In the earthquake in 1787, the simple church was demolished and only the image of the Lord of the Reed was preserved.

In 1942, the church that is seen today was built, which is one of the referents of the architectural landscape of the City of Cali. The current construction is a Neo-Gothic miniature church, and like many neo-Gothic churches in America it is inspired by the Cathedral of Ulm, Germany. The new hermitage is dedicated to Our Lady of Sorrows and inside it retains the old image of the Lord of the Reed on the left side altar.
