Beneath snow-capped volcanoes in the Andean Highlands, Cuenca is an enchanting World Heritage Site providing a quiet ambiance to complement the country’s more adventurous discoveries.
Here the streets are from a different era as 17th-century facades stand majestically above cobblestone. A private guide will show you around and narrate all the local history.
There’s a story here from before the Incas, along with tales of when the Spanish arrived. Half a day is fine to see the highlights, but stay longer if you wish to really soak up the vibe.
