The view is terrific, didn't bother to go into the church. Just, down the street is the studio of the famous ceramic artist, Vega. That's definitely worth a look as well (1 minute walk)

This little church is gaudy and not very sacred feeling. The neon lights kind of say jt all. There are much more interesting churches in Cuenca.

But once you have seen a lot of them they just are not that interesting anymore. It has shops for tourists but nothing special. The view of the city is impressive.

We took the double decker tour bus to Turi. The attractions on the way were ok and we saw part of the city. I was expecting much more at Turi. The church is nice but there is nothing to do there besides take a few photos (nice view but hardly a skyline of a major city), enter the church, and... More

TURI isn't that far and the red double decker tour bus that takes you all over Cuenca will stop there for a bit. The view is good! IF YOU TAKE THAT TOUR BUS, THERE ARE LOW HANGING WIRES ALL OVER..IF SOMEONE STANDS UP OR IS EVEN SEMI TALL THEY HAVE TO DUCK WHILE SEATED TOO...SEMI DANGEROUS. For kids and camera... More

Nice view over new town Cuenca with the old town in the background. Other than that, I see no real reason to go there, unless for some reason you like to do your souvenir shopping at a higher altitude than the rest of town.

A geat place to view the city of Cuenca. The double decker tour stops and allows you time to get out and look around but it is not enough time. I wanted to visit the church and if we had time we would have taken a taxi back there. There are a lot of steps you can walk up from... More

This is the main stop on the "City bus tour" leaving from the Parque Calderon. It is a very small village set high above Cuenca offering spectacular views of the city below, bring the camera! There are a few small shops and a quaint little church with some beautiful architecture. It is a quick 15 minute stop of some beautiful... More

The panorama bus takes you there for 5$, on the way you get to see the historical center from a different viewpoint and also some information in Spanish, I don't know if they have English speaking guides.

Turí is an excellent way to spend a few hours; walk up the 439 steps to the best viewpoint of the city and grab a beer or look around the galleries at the top. Or take a bus up for 25c and save your legs the next day!
