El Cerrito

The most representative products of Valle del Cauca are sugar cane and its derivatives and constitute the reason for having erected the Sugar Cane Museum, in the municipality of Cerrito. The building is located on Hacienda Piedechinche, only 42 km from Cali.

Documents that record the history of the growth of the sugar industry, gardens full of plants that surround sugar cane culture, sugar cane mills, instruments used for the cultivation of this magnificent plant, and a series of works from colonial times and the 19th century are part of the museum’s exhibits that immerse tourists in sugar cane life.
