Sebastian de Belalcazar - Mirador en Cali Colombia
En 1937 se inauguró esta estatua, encomendada al escultor español Víctor Macho. Se encuentra ubicada en el barrio Arboledas, en Cali, en una colina que sirve de mirador al oeste de la capital del Valle del Cauca. En la estatua, el conquistador señala el occidente, por ser esta la salida al mar Pacífico.
