Spectacular views of the city- and a few nice handicrafts shops w/reasonable prices (I scored some beautiful alpaca scarves for $3 a piece). There is also a shop that sells nice looking shoes/boots (not cheap, but looked to be good quality). Worth a 30 minute visit.

It is a must go in Cuenca! Take the tour bus in Parque Calderon and enjoy the ride. Very cultural and great way to learn about the new and old city of Cuenca!

We had heard this was a good vantage point for the city, and had read that you could get a $5 taxi to get up there. Instead, we grabbed a $5/person red double decker sightseeing bus to tour the city, which included the mirador. The bus is worth it, but the mirador, to do it on it's own....maybe not so... More

Although it is cool to stand on a line and show your friends that you were (almost) on the Equator, it lacked a lot of interest for me. It's cute, great place to bring the kids, and a bucket list photo opp, just don't expect to make a mind blowing day of it.

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.
