  • Highly recommended Museum, very good exhibitions, great works of art but what caught my attention is the very complete gallery of coins and banknotes. I recommend it

  • It's a bit of a walk from the center of town, but it's a picturesque one as it follows the river most of the way. Exhibits concentrate on the many tribal peoples of Ecuador.  more »
  • Nice to have a park with traditional gardens in the middle of the city! Either combine with a visit to the museum, or just stroll and see the different veggies that the Incas produced!  more »
