El Carmen de la Asuncion Church, Cuenca

4.8
#5 of 13 in Historic Sites in Cuenca
Unassuming and whitewashed, El Carmen de la Asuncion Church sits in the heart of the city and remains an example of traditional religious architecture. Built in the 17th century, the simple structure stands in stark contrast to the flower market, a colorful collection of stalls held right in front of the church.
