Santiago de Cali is one of the oldest cities in Colombia. It was founded in 1536 by the conquistador Sebastián de Belalcázar. Before the conquest, Cali was inhabited by indean tribes such as the gorrones, timbas and morrones. During the firest days of the XIX century, cali will join the efforts to achieve independency from spain, and rised on July 3rd of 1810, making an alliance with neighbouring cities as was done by the natives in the Cauva Valley to oppose the spaniards decades earlier.Due to its location, which is ideal for the development of commerce, Cali began to transform into one of the biggest cities of the country at the beginning of the XXth century, in part due to the construction of new means of transportation - such as trainways and highways- which connect the city with the Buenaventura port, favoring the exportation industry. Present day Cali is a prosperous city, which is known as the colombian capital of the rumba and salsa due to the great number renowned schools that teach these dances.
Amenia is the capital of the Department of Quindío, and one of the main cities in the coffee Belt of Colombia. The city was founded on October 14th 1889 by Jesús María Ocampo, who was known as the “Tigrero” (Tiger Killer), as he was a Jaguar hunter. Ocampo bought an extensive terrain where he created a small inn for himself and other pioneers that came from neighboring regions. The city was first known as Villa Holguín in honor of the then president Carlos Holguín Mallarino, but the name was later changed to Armenia in memory to the Armenian Genocide (1915-1923). Many Armenian tourists visit the city for this particular reason.The “City of Miracles” as it is called, benefited itself from highways created early in the XXth century, which allowed the city to easily reach Zarzal and other cities along the Cauca River and allowed it to development as an important trade hub. Armenia was hit badly by a strong earthquake the 25th of January in 1999 but, after 18 years, the city has been rebuilt and is now one of the most visited colombean city by tourists of all parts of the world.
