The third-largest city of Ecuador, Cuenca, is one of the most attractive cities in the country. The city is known for its climate, charm and surrounding mountains. The city centre is filled with historic architecture and streets and is a UNESCO World Heritage site. The city’s historic architecture dates back to the 18th century, including cathedrals, monasteries, and churches. During colonization, the city was laid out in grids, and this pattern of street development is still followed.
