With at least a dozen major museums in Cuenca, there is lots to keep inquiring minds busy. The best, however, is also the largest museum in the city: Museo Banco Central del Ecuador (Central Bank Museum).

The museum includes exhibits featuring colonial artwork, walk-through displays of typical homes throughout Ecuador’s history, an Incan archaeological site, an aviary featuring common birds in Ecuador and a small group of llamas that graze in the open field.

The gardens at the foot of the hill are beautiful – featuring plant life from all over Ecuador. Great for an afternoon.

    I’m in Cuenca at the moment to have a look and see before making the decision to retire here. I’ve been here for 5 days now and am sure this is where I want to come and live. I expect to move here after the holidays. Can you suggest the best way to bring my 6 pieces of luggage I want to bring along? I just relocated back from being in the Middle East for 14 years with that much luggage. I’m just now starting to look for possible a apartment to rent. I would like to be in the older part of the city. Can you suggest a realtor I could use?
