short but nice

we took a tour bus, so we didn't spend too much time in the little shop. I didn't like that I felt rushed. But the view was really nice!

We walked all the say from Hotel Victoria, and back again.....which is a long walk, up many steps. But it was so worth it. The views from Mirador de Turi are quite extraordinary. If you are not up to walking, you can take a bus or a taxi, but it won't be the same as enjoying the views all the... More

We took a taxi up to the Mirador de Turi and the views of Cuenca were stunning; even though it was cloudy and drizzling. There are a few of the typical tourist shops up here, but you can get good deals. We walked the 400+ steps down; interesting paintings on the steps.

We stayed for 10 nights in Cuenca and walked the stairs (439 of them) to Turi a couple of times. We jogged it up once-and that kicked out butts! The views from the top are wonderful. The church is open to the public and there is a restaurant up there that serves a great meal at a reasonable price as... More

We went here on the city tour bus and the view made the tour worthwhile. All those beautiful red roofs. No wonder Cuenca is called the red city.

This is a good place to get a view of Cuenca and take a few pictures. There are some gift items available very close to the overlook. At the bottom of the hill is a restaurant called Fogo's (in a large building), which has good food (and a classy sports/steak house diner ambiance) and increases what you can accomplish on... More
