Always a well-dressed lady, Cuenca offers many parks and iglesias; the blue-domed Catedral de la Inmaculada Concepción is surely the most-photographed church in the city!


Lovely Cuenca!

Detouring away from the iglesias,  this final image shows the archaeological site of Ingapirca, where the Inca and Canari Indians worshiped the sun and the moon.  Pictured below is the temple of the sun.
