very nice park in the center of El Centro with interesting churches and buildings around it to be explored. Check out the mural and current art exhibits at the Governors House opposite the park

The plaza is a natural center of Cuenca. It has a beautiful landscape, and it draws people in for festivals and hanging out every day. It's a remarkable place, and surrounding it are the two most important and scenic cathedrals in the city.

This is the beautiful plaza in the center of Cuenca known as El Centro. It is beautifully landscaped. There are various kinds of little shops around it. The flower market nearby is particularly pretty.

This park is right in the middle of Cuenca and seems to always have activity. I went many times but my favorite is Sunday afternoon to sit and watch families spend time together. We have lost this gift in my country...Sundays with family

If you go to Cuenca, you have or will pass by the Plaza. It’s beautiful to take pics or just seat on a bench to relax.
