To get an unbeatable view of the city, visit Mirador de Turi, a hill just outside the city. Take a cab or the double-decker tour bus that runs here to reach the lookout point (mirador means "lookout" in Spanish). Or, if you’d like a more challenging ascent, take the long staircase to the top, beginning at the nearby mall. At the top, take some time to appreciate the views of the city and the surrounding mountains. The white church, the Church of Turi, is also a great sight from inside and out. The hill is close to a pottery studio, as well as Cuenca’s main shopping mall, so squeeze in some retail therapy after your visit. A visit to Mirador de Turi represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Cuenca online vacation planner to plot your vacation.
