Cumbaya

Cumbayá is a rural parish of the Metropolitan District of Quito in the Pichincha Province, Ecuador. It is located east of Quito, in the Tumbaco Valley northwest of Ilaló volcano, in the valley of the San Pedro River, a tributary of the Guayllabamba River, at an elevation of approximately 2200 m (7200 ft) above sea level. Because it is at a lower altitude than Quito, it has a warmer climate (about 2 to 5 degrees Celsius higher on average).In recent years, the parish has become a commuter town of Quito as a significant number of middle-upper and higher class families move from the city to live a more suburban lifestyle. This shift in population has attracted money to the area that boosted the local economy.Examples of architecture drawing from the area's rural beginnings include the Iglesia de Cumbayá in the Main Square and the Iglesia de Miravalle built in 1987. Modern examples include the Rancho San Francisco complex, La Esquina, Centro Plaza, and Villa Cumbayá shopping centers, among new office blocks. Quorum Quito in the Cumbayá Valley is the largest and most advanced convention and business center in all of Ecuador. In 2013 it gathered parliamentarians from all over the world at the assemblee of the Interparliamentary Union.The Túnel Oswaldo Guayasamín, the longest vehicular tunnel in Ecuador at 1.5 km in length, connects the parish with the Iñaquito urban parish of the city of Quito.
