The hats are top quality for an amazing price. The view from the coffee shop alone is worth stopping by. Highly recommended when in Cuenca!

The view from the terrace and the wonderful coffee, in addition to the hat shopping experience, make this a must. Take photos, enjoy the music and savor the wonders of the old city.

The museum is small, but enough to explain the hats. The view from the roof is incredible, be sure to go up! They have so many hats here in colors and similar styles, very fun to try on and look at.

Beautiful place and a MUST if you decide to visit Cuenca, Ecuador. You will find all type of hats and most important all are made of paja toquilla which is native from Ecuador.

Of course, by the time you leave, you will understand that they are not Panama hats at all, but I won't ruin the surprise. I'd long wanted a really good, authentic red fedora, and this is the place to get it. N, they are not cheap. But there are levels of cost. But even if you are not interested in buying, the "factory" if fascinating. If you ARE in the market, they will actually fabricate your cover while you watch and wait. Not interested in the process? Walk upstairs, have a snack or a drink, and take in the view across the river into the city! Really fun visit!
