A short drive up from centro (or a very long walk). The views of the city are great and you get a nice side view of the blue domes of the new cathedral. Be sure to clime the hill in back of the overlook as there are some very nice shops selling all types of chotchkies and great little souvenirs.

If you need some exercise, like good views and have a few hours to kill hike up the steps to Turi. I personally like walking to the stairs from el centro, then up the steps to Turi and walking back. However, there is the option of taking the bus or a cheap taxi to the top and walking down. Part... More

A great place to view the side facade of the New Catedral with its blue domes. Plus a view of almost entire city. Get your zoom ready and go to the Mirador de Turi (a 15-min taxi ride from the historical center; roughly $5-6 both ways).

The views are very good, although I think the ones from the Amaru Zoo were better. We took the tour bus from downtown to get here. The bus really doesn't do much besides take you here as it doesn't stop anywhere and the oral descriptions are hard to follow even if you speak Spanish (as I do). If you want... More

This is a must if you visit Cuenca. You can see the whole city from there. The entrance is free. It's next to a church and you can get there by the tour buses or a taxi.

We took a city tour which included the Mirador. The city tour was great for getting our bearings, the Mirador part was ok but not a must do.

The view from Turi is wonderful and there is a lovely church and a small cafe to get a snack. If one walks up, they will be very, very challenged, but the bus runs regularly and so do taxis.

Great location for viewing this city as the sun disappears. We also lingered and had a drink and snack at one of the restaurants up above the plaza. We took a taxi from our hostal to the mirador but then had trouble finding one when we were ready to leave but a very friendly store-keeper was helping us call when... More
