Head to Plaza Civica and browse the many market stalls for trinkets and tasty goodies. A social hub of the downtown area, the market is a great place to people watch, with benches in the middle of the square where you can simply take a seat and soak up the atmosphere. If you want to shop, be prepared to do some haggling, but you'll find some unique hand-crafted trinkets and household items such as fruit baskets or soup spoons. If you’re hungry, snack on some street food or fresh produce from the area. To visit Plaza Civica and other attractions in Cuenca, use our Cuenca travel itinerary maker.
