  • The Central Park Square of Cuenca with in the center the statue the National liberation Hero Calderon, flanked by 8 huge perpendicular trees of 61 m altitude. The square itself is flanked by the old and new cathedral and many colonial, beautifully restored buildings. Ideal starting point for your discovery tour of the Old City.
