For its charming historical center, the churches, the small cobbled streets and colonial houses with noble facades, prim balustrades, wrought iron balconies and red tiled roofs, Cuenca was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1999.

About Cuenca

The impressive churches in the old center are dating back to the 16th to 17th century, and if you believe it or not, this is the city of churches with 52 churches, one for every Sunday! Being in the historical center, you might get the impression that time has stood still.
