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

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.
