It’s unpredictable. Cuencanos say that they experience the four seasons in a single day (sun with heat and rain with cold), so we advise you to wear several pieces of clothing. Have a sweater and a coat on hand to wear and take them back in a matter of hours. It usually rains unexpectedly as the sun returns at the end of the afternoon.

After Quito, Cuenca is Ecuador’s most important and beautiful colonial city. But don’t say that to the locals, who insist that their laid-back culture, cleaner streets and more agreeable weather outclass the capital, hands down. Dating from the 16th century, Cuenca’s historic center, a Unesco World Heritage Site with its trademark skyline of massive rotundas and soaring steeples, is a place time keeps forgetting: nuns march along cobblestone streets, kids in Catholic-school uniforms skip past historic churches, and old ladies spy on promenading lovers from their geranium-filled balconies. The city is the center of many craft traditions, including ceramics, metalwork and the internationally famous panama hat – and the nearby villages offer many more handicrafts besides.

The presence of corn is important in the preparation of many foods such as the tamal, mote pata, mote pilla and beverages such as chicha, rosero and morocho. Families retain their old recipes for fritters, which are based on the exact dosage of corn flour pre-cooked with anise to which eggs and milk are added, and beaten by hand until fatigue sets in. Portions of the creamy batter are fried and browned in lard and served with syrup. Finger licking good! Mote pata, perhaps the king of the traditional dishes of Cuenca.

The architectural and cultural riches of the city, in general, have merited Cuenca its designation as a World Heritage City on December 1, 1999. The Historic Center of nearly 200 hectares is made up of the oldest residential area. Here we find a large number of buildings of great beauty in the colonial or Republican style; the archaeological area, the craft neighborhoods (of colonial origin); the central markets; the Tomebamba River Bluff with the Paseo 3 de Noviembre street and several other sites of cultural and scenic importance that show why the city was declared a World Heritage.
