High in the Ecuadorian highlands, Cuenca’s jigsaw of red-roofed buildings is framed against the green of the mountains, the skyline pierced by the spires and domes of colonial churches. At street level, delightful cobbled alleys, historic plazas and flower-laden window boxes create a charming historic city, more than deserving of its UNESCO World Heritage listing.

Cuenca is a pleasure to explore on foot, strolling its picturesque streets and colorful markets, discovering museums housed in grand 19th century buildings and the cool interiors of elegant churches. Away from the city, in the rolling hills of the highlands lie Inca ruins at Ingapirca and the traditional handicrafts of the Gualaceo Valley.
