Tell me more about Cuenca…
- Visit this UNESCO World Heritage Trust Site. Although Cuenca is Ecuador's third largest city, it has retained its old-world ambience with cobblestone streets and colonial architecture, including 52 churches and monasteries, that remains intact and is considered one of the country’s best-guarded treasures.
- In the Todos Los Santos area, it is possible to see architecture spanning three different reigning parties: the Cañari (the first inhabitants), the Incas who conquered them, and finally the Spanish setters.
