Mirador de Turi, Cuenca

(800+ reviews on the web)
Church
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.

  • It is a must-see in basin site, from there you can see the entire city; Besides the Church, there are multiple places to eat and other activities, and for the purchase of souvenirs.

  • It is a wonderful place you can't miss, there is a privileged view of the city, in addition to the Church with its colonial architecture. There are also some crafts jobs with a variety of items at good prices.

  • It's not located that far a way from the city. You can get here in a 15min walk upstairs which is totally worth it as you get a great view of the city. I'll recommend to go and see the sunset here is beautiful.
  • Nice view to the city.
  • Nice view !
  • The issue of parking is a problem. The panoramic view of the city is impressive. There is a complex for adventure activities which is people crowded on holidays. The facilities are bad although the big swing is cool.
