Product code: 4048
Overview

The city tour will start at the Plaza San Sebastian, which constitutes the western colonial border of the city of Cuenca.

Then visit the modern art museum where many contemporary artworks are displayed. We will walk by the downtown historical area to visit the San Francisco market, the flower market, the culture house, the Abdon Calderon Park, and the old cathedral (we will not enter).

We will then enter the New Cathedral, it’s the biggest in the country where we’ll observe the famous gold leaf canopy.

Then we will continue the tour to the Homero Ortega Panama Hat factory to observe the complete process of manufacturing of the Panama hat which is undoubtedly most important to our country.

Later we will visit the “Barranco” with its colonial style terraced houses located next to the “Tomebamba River”. Also, we will also observe the “Broken Bridge” and finally visit the tourist balcony of “Turi” where we can see a panoramic view of the whole city of Cuenca. Then return to the Hotel.

Cuenca is located in the south of Ecuador in the Andes mountains at an elevation of 2500 meters. The city is famous for its architecture, the climate is generally cool, its people are very friendly. Many people say that Cuenca looks a lot like a European city because of Spanish colonial architecture. Many of the buildings in the centre are beautifully decorated in colonial style with red-tiled roofs and little flowers. You can see the city totally from the Turi, a viewpoint ten minutes of the main way. The Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception of Cuenca is a very splendid architectural piece, It is of Romanesque, Gothic and Renaissance style that makes you feel you as if you were in Europe.

We always enjoy our Cuenca City Tour. This is the best way to get a good overview of Cuenca to get your bearings on the city. There’s nothing like it on a beautiful sunny day. The tour is informational as well as beautiful.
