Description

On this fun tour you will visit interesting sights, such as El Barranco (the Barranco is the name given to the buildings that hang above the rushing River Tomebamba, which is flanked by grassy riverside and gorgeous colonial buildings). The river can be accessed from the center of Cuenca via 3 stone stairways and one of the main features is the Puente Roto (broken bridge), the remains of an old stone bridge that once crossed the river. Then, you'll see Pumapungo Archaeological Park. Pumapungo, meaning 'door of the puma', was the central city of Tomebamba ordered to be built by the Inca commander Tupac Yupanqui after the Inca defeat of the Cañari. In its splendor, it was said to have rivaled the Inca capital of Cuzco. Next up is El Paraiso Park, the largest park in Cuenca. Covering 17 hectares, the park opened its doors for the first time in 2003. 2 rivers pass through the park, the Yanuncay and Tomebamba. There are hundreds of trees including eucalyptus, willows and alders, as well as a large artificial pond which is home to ducks and geese, as well as small boats. Finally, you'll see Quinta de Bolívar. Simón Bolí­var visited Cuenca twice in 1822 where he stayed in a house which has since been named Quinta Bolí­var. Although it isn't the original building, which was demolished in the 1930s, this is the location which Bolívar used to rest and plan military and political actions when in Cuenca. It is now a cultural center used to exhibit work related to the life of Bolívar and his ideology.
