Plaza Abdon Calderon, Cuenca

(4.7/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Take a break from the city and walk through Plaza Abdon Calderon for some peace. The plaza is marked by historic buildings and has many places to sit and take in the multiple kinds of trees around in the area. Two iconic cathedrals sit on opposite sides of the plaza and offer tours of the interiors. The area is a favorite in the city for people-watching, and you'll likely see street performers throughout the day as well.

  • A quaint and regal park. Well kept and groomed in line with the jewel it is. Some fabulous landscaping explanation too; The chap in the middle was a big deal (hense statue). He had 8 children. Each of which is also honoured with a big tree next to him. Like. Oh, and there's free WiFi.
  • Audience directed to Pokémon TRAINERS foreign and locals alike. First and foremost, FREE (decent) WiFi. A superb place to catch Pokémon; there are three bunched up pokestops plus a gym all in the one square city block known as Abdon Calderon Park.
  • Awesome place for an awesome city! It is quite rare to find a place so deep with tradition and cosmopolitan at the same time.
  • nicest area in cuenca, very safe, loads of tourist, more hotels and restaurants than you can count, a bit pricey but a must-see area. best restaurant in cuenca is "la viña"- 4 blocks down louis cordero at the corner of cordero and juan jaramillo. owner is from milan, italy and serves AUTHENIC italian dishes and pizza. service/quality of food= GREAT!! open evenings, closed sundays. my family & i eat there several times a month.
  • Gorgeous - full of great people watching and activities!
