Cuenca is also called the Athens of Ecuador for its architecture, its cultural diversity, its contribution to the arts, science, and letters. This magnificent city is the birthplace of great illustrious personalities of Ecuadorian society and is also known as Cuenca of the Andes.

Cuenca is known as a peaceful city and second in the world for foreign retirement. The drive from Cuenca to Yunguilla is a display of lush green hills, imposing mountains, and charming villages. You can appreciate the locals selling their fruits, vegetables, and Cacao by the side of the road.
