4/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web
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. Make Mirador de Turi a centerpiece of your Cuenca vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Cuenca trip itinerary planner.

  • To four kilometers to the South of Cuenca is can ascend to the Hill the Turi, that you gives a beautiful view of the city. The place has a beautiful old church and stalls selling handicrafts and religious sculptures are located along the bleachers that leads to the top of the Hill.
