Cuenca & Surroundings holidays

The charming colonial town of Cuenca is a Unesco world heritage site with delightful boutique hotels situated in 19th-century mansions.

Stroll along the cobbled streets and admire the red-roofed colonial houses, graceful iron balconies, flower-filled plazas, churches and cathedrals. The nearby Gualaceo valley is home to various small towns that produce beautiful shawls and scarves, traditional panama hats and gold jewellery. It is also possible to visit the Inca ruins of Ingapirca or travel through the moorland of the Cajas National Park.
