Distinct structure
Feb 2020
San Blas church in the east part of the city is rather different from other colonial era churches in Cuenca. What you see is a reconstruction dating from 1935. I did not find the pretty confusing mixture of various styles and materials very attractive. Pink is the most distinct color of the building. The fact the Spanish used stone from conquered Tomebamba in the original construction is not something to be proud of either.

I was on my way to the church when I was sidetracked by the lovely plaza in front. So peaceful! Nice to see families relaxing and enjoying the day and eachothers company

Go during service

I did not find it open. You would have to go during service to see inside the church. The plaza in front of it is very pleasant and there is a great pizza shop there.

Less Visited Church

Attractive church located at the far end of a small park bearing its moniker. The church is unique in the fact it’s stone facade is almost pink in certain light. The cavernous interior is softened by the light yellow color scheme. The tiled floors are reminiscent of some churches in Spain or Portugal.

Beautiful and recently redone inside

One of Cuenca's most beautiful churches. We were there on the day of a wedding so we couldn't go inside, but we got a good view of the sanctuary.

This church looks really impressive, but as of July 2017, there's no way to find out. It's undergoing a complete rebuild and is closed to all visitors.

Nice!

Wandering around the hotel I found the San Blas place. Nice and worth visiting the small park with the local handcrafts market within.

A quaint church to visit
Jan 2017 • Couples
We came by on a Sunday morning and just managed to arrive after mass let out. It’s a beautiful older church with colourful artwork. The park right across, of the same name, is lovely to visit.
