[:es]Cuenca colonial y sus museos
Cuenca es una de las ciudades coloniales más bellas de Ecuador y también Patrimonio de la Humanidad de la Unesco. Es una ciudad de fachadas de los últimos cinco siglos que se han mantenido intactas debido al privilegio único de ser la única ciudad en los Andes ecuatorianos que no ha sido afectada por grandes terremotos. Visitaremos la Catedral, la Plaza de Armas, el mercado de flores, las iglesias de San Francisco y Santo Domingo y el Museo del Banco Central con colecciones permanentes de arte arqueológico, antropológico, colonial y republicano, incluyendo fotografías que documentan la historia de la ciudad. El recorrido continúa en el Museo de las Conceptas, que es una de las iglesias y convento más antiguos de la ciudad que data de 1599. Hoy en día, la casa de cuatro pisos es también un museo con diversos objetos religiosos, pinturas y arte clásico.

Visitamos una fábrica de sombreros de Panamá donde se pueden encontrar una gran variedad de artículos hechos con bolsas de toquilla, muñecas y, por supuesto, miles de estilos de sombreros, colores y precios. Al final de la visita, estaremos en el mirador de Turi para una vista panorámica de la ciudad.

Incluye: desayuno, tickets de entrada museos Banco Central y Conceptas.
