“We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Franco Brito today. He was incredibly knowledgeable about Cuenca, not only about the history of the city, but also shared with us a vast wealth of information on Cuenca's people, culture, and architectural wonders. ...Anonymous, – See more reviews
What To Expect
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 arts 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 enter in the New Cathedral, it's the biggest in the country there we'll observe the famous gold leaf canopy.
We 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. At the end of the tour, you will return to the hotel.
