"The Most Beautiful City in Ecuador" Ladyandtramp's photos around Cuenca, Ecuador [01:05]
A TripAdvisor™ TripWow slideshow of a travel blog to Cuenca, Ecuador by TravelPod blogger Ladyandtramp titled ""The Most Beautiful City in Ecuador"" Ladyandtramp's travel blog entry: "In two more weeks, we will be home. This is the time that working on a blog becomes a bit of a chore. Finding the time and an internet cafe in new places can be a bit of a challenge ... but we want to tell you a bit about Cuenca and our plans for the next two weeks. A week ago we flew 1000 km from the Galapagos to the mainland city of Guayaquil. We made the choice to fly on to Cuenca rather than take a bus and we are glad that we did this. When flying over Guayaquil, we noticed that it was flooded following a big rainstorm - roads underwater and houses with water right up to the walls. Later we heard that there had been several landslides on the highway connecting Guayaquil to Cuenca and the road was a mess. The bus ride would have been awful and it only took us 1/2 hour by plane. Cuenca is a lovely colonial city which has been named the most beautiful city in Ecuador. It is in the southern sierra, about 440 km (275 m) south of Quito and is Ecuador´s 3rd largest city with a population of around 400000 people. It is a UNESCO Heritage Site, which is a place of either cultural or physical significance. Cuenca was chosen because of its historical buildings with cobblestone streets, lots of beautiful churches and lovely old mansions. Before the Spanish arrived in 1534, it was the 2nd largest city ...

The beautiful city of Cuenca - Cuenca, Ecuador ( why cuenca a beautiful city, &oq=, ecudor) [01:53]
A TripAdvisor™ TripWow video of a travel blog to Cuenca, Ecuador by TravelPod blogger Mogandfrog. See this TripWow and more at tripwow.tripadvisor.com The beautiful city of Cuenca "We are in Cuenca, a lovely colonial city with a historical centre dating back to the 16th century, now a World Heritage Site. The journey here from Puerto Lopez involved a 4 hour journey to Guayaquil on a very dilapidated bus that smelled of stale fish, followed by a further 4 hour journey on a smart, luxurious bus with masses of leg room and aircon! The second leg of the journey was spectacular as we wound our way up into the Andes and could see a blanket of cloud spread out below us. We passed through the stunning Parque Nacional de Cajas, a wild and windswept place that looked a lot like the Scottish Highlands, before descending through an Alpine valley to Cuenca, which is located at 2500 metres above sea level. After seeing much poverty in Ecuador, Cuenca felt like a different country, more European feeling than Latin American. There is obviously considerably more wealth here. Most of the towns that we have passed through in the rest of the country consist of buildings that are half-finished, usually made of breezeblocks with metal poles sticking out of the roofs, and have streets strewn with rubbish. In Cuenca, the cobblestone streets are spotless, and there are churches and landscaped parks on every other corner. The old town is separated from the new town by the Rio Tomebamba which flows ...
