CASA LOS NARANJOS
is a typical house from Granada Neighborhood built in the 1940's by the Naranjo family with roots in Antioquia and Chile. The name of the house was decided to tribute their last name and therefore Los Naranjos. The Naranjo Family hired the best architects in town back in the time and imported from Italy most of the construction materials as the beautiful floors that make the space so unique. It is located in the same street as the national famous "Casa Los Leones" for its architectonic interest and next to the complete Plazoleta Jairo Varela.

GRANADA NEIGHTBOURHOOD - The Granada neighborhood was famous back in the day because it was owned by two very prominent families (Lopez, Sarasti & Caicedo). These families erected some gorgeous Republican style mansions (and some of these buildings still remain). The neighborhood is undergoing a resurgence and it is upscale for Cali. The feel is laid back. There are restaurants (and this is where you’ll find a bit more diversity in cuisines). There are also some great little boutiques for some very well known Colombian designers. This is THE neighborhood where you would choose to stay. It’s walkable and safe.
