This is part of the southern tour run by this Vanservice company. Tickets can be purchased in Parque Abdon Calderon in the side of the square opposite the new cathedral. The tour also included information about museums and other attractions you can visit around Cuenca. The bus will stop anywhere to pick you up or drop you off. It only... More

Fantastic views is the city of Cuenca, easy to see all the landmarks below and you get a great sense of how the mountains frame the city in the valley below. It's no more than 10 mins from the city centre by taxi. Most people go there as part of a city bus tour (as we did). The problem we... More

One can only imagine how many souls have felt closer to their God in this spot. Looking across the mountain bowl that holds this glorious colonial city, it seems the site was meant for such a lovely church. The red-roofs of the city are rich in colour contrast to the greys and greens of the Andes slopes, and the drama... More

This was part of a bus tour that cost only $8.00 dollars and lasted approximately 3 hours. The view from this place is fantastic for taking pictures.

Go for the view, best accomplished by riding the red double decker bus tour. Not much to do there unless you enjoy the typical kitchen souvenir shops these venues provide so frequently.

The Mirador, as its name "lookout" implies, provides a great view of Cuenca, with a large map of the city, so you can get an idea of what you're looking at. After the tour bus ride up there on a winding road, it would have been nice to have some refreshment besides the basic chips-and-soda selection at the little store.... More
