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

We took the tour bus from Parque Calderon for the second time. This time, we intended to stay up at Mirador de Turi to explore. The plan was to take the next tour bus back. This gave us two hours to walk around. The view is spectacular and the clouds create magnificent fluffy sculptures in the sky minute by minute.... More

The fabulous view of the whole city is worth the short ride there. Didn't really walk around much while up there, but after reading the other reviews would have stopped at Vegas house and studio.

Typical tourist point with a great view of the city and a nice leather and souvenier place but not much else.

You simply can not visit Cuenca Ecuador with out going up to Turi. It is a short cab ride from the El Centro area, or, you can take the tour bus that is available leaving from Parque Calderon. You will get a breath taking view of the entire city. And, don't forget, while up there, to take a short walk... More

The mirardor is on the double decker bus tour route but is also accessible on foot or by taxi. It's worth a trip up there to get the big picture. Stop at Eduardo Vega's ceramic workshop on the way.

Just awesome view of the city of Cuenca and the surrounding areas. Gorgeous views. There is a small souvenir shop near the top. A little in the expensive side. The tour bus will drive you up to the Mirador.

Part of the Red Bus tour (which I also recommend). Great vantage point to see the size of Cuenca with its many beautiful steeples and domes

Took a tour, and visited El Turi, and that's it. Nice view of Cuenca, nice view, and no more. Is worth it for 5 minutes.

If you stay in Cuenca, it's a must to be at the Turi for having the opportunity to see Cuenca city. Especially in the evening you'll have a wonderful view until the historical center.
