Travel Tips for Cuenca

The Rio Tomebamba

by pure1942

The Tomebamba river flows through the city of Cuenca and its banks are a great place to take a stroll. Besides the quaint riverside houses and tree covered paths, the banks are a good place to have a peek into local traditional life as many locals still lay out their clothes on the banks of the river to dry. This has been a Cuenca tradition for centuries.

excellent ice cream..

by elsadran about Cafe Austria

In an elegant and comfortable environment you will relax over a cup of coffee or have a quiet conversation with your friends. Service is very good, food quality is high, and the location is very convenient, as it is right in the center of action. Prices are about 6-7$US for the main dishes. I tried their excellent "Lasagna Bolognese" and the chicken which was also very tasty. There are fresh fruit juices, delicious sweets and excellent Italian ice cream, as my friends told me, as I don't eat it. Even celebrities of the city are customers of this pleasant cafe-restaurant.

A River Stroll to the Broken Bridge

by calcaf38

For extra photos of the Tomebamba river as it flows through Cuenca, see my travelogue. The Puente roto, or broken bridge, is at the Southeast edge of the historical district, near the Inca Ruins and the Central Bank Museum.

I don't know what caused the bridge to collapse, but, like all French-educated people, my first guess is that it happened during a dance, to punish youngsters who had gone out against their mother's orders. At the end of the chilling "Pont de Nantes" nursery rhyme, the mother asks: "what are the bells ringing for?"

La mère demande
Pourquoi donc tant sonner?

C'est pour Adèle
Et votre fils aîné

Voilà le sort
Des enfants obstinés!

Plaza San Sebastian

by richiecdisc

Oddly enough we did not get to Plaza San Sebastian until our last day in Cuenca. While most visitors would rank it second only to Parque Calderón, as mentioned previously we got stuck in Plaza San Blas a few times and hence our late “discovery” of this quiet square that heralds one of the city’s oldest churches that dates back to the 17th century. It is most infamous for the murder of a member of the French geodesic expedition. And no, they were not mad about their using another plaza’s church for their measurements; he was thought to have had an affair with a local woman.

Cuenca's balconies

by richiecdisc

If there is one thing that really distinguishes Cuenca it’s the numerous balconies that dot the old town center. They are likely the thing you will remember most vividly when you think back on your pleasant strolls through the city. Some are made of iron, others carved meticulously of wood but generally speaking they are intricate and add a true Spanish flair to the already colorful buildings that wall the narrow streets.
