This cathedral is a little strange, because it was left unfinished. Nevertheless, it is beautiful, and there is a good view if you will climb 170 steps to the top.

The Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception (Spanish: Catedral de la Inmaculada Concepción), is situated in front of Parque Calderon. Construction began in 1885 and took nearly a century to complete.

Beautiful church with amazing views of the historic center of Cuenca. The priest happily blessed our rosaries before we left the church. If a priest isn't nearby, the nuns near the back of the church will help you. Just ask around. Everyone is so gentle and helpful.

When we were in Cuenca, the church was closed—not sure if it was because of COVID or for another reason—but we were able to climb the tower. We entered the tower at a door on the north side of the building, just at the beginning of the alleyway. $2.

It’s a super cool spiraling walk up with the reward of awesome close-up views of the domes and a birds-eye of the city. Travelling now comes with the HUGE benefit of being in popular touristy places without crowds of people. There were less than 20 other people up on the rooftop with us, so we were able to take in views unimpeded.

Back at the bottom again, we were able to peek through a window into the church itself. Beautiful.

This cathedral is spectacular, inside and out. Be sure to climb to the rooftop for views of Cuenca and environs. Cost is $2.50 and worth every penny.

This was the highlight of our visit to Cuenca. Make sure you access the terrace which is accessible from the side entrance (it may be confusing as the church usually closes at 12 but the terrace may still be open until 4pm - check schedules)
