This park represents the heart of Cuenca so please don't miss it. Sometimes, as yesterday evening, you can find young people dancing urban music (hip hop), which gives this place a special plus.

The plaza is a natural center of Cuenca. It has a beautiful landscape, and it draws people in for festivals and hanging out every day. It's a remarkable place, and surrounding it are the two most important and scenic cathedrals in the city.
