  • At first glance, it impresses the architecture of the House with the Moorish air. Small Presley Norton Museum named after the archaeologist who donated the beautiful and valuable pieces in pre-Columbian of Guayaquil and littoral of Ecuador culture pottery. That ultimately personally was what most liked and was impressed. Also in the House develops cultural activities and at the time of my visit an exhibition of the architect Rene Bravo Espinoza. Photos without flash are allowed. It is located in Av. October 9 near the Malecón del Salado. Free entry, I didn't Guide, only a very friendly receptionist who retains identity card to enter and a guard.

Where to stay in Guayaquil

Guayaquil's sprawling layout means its center isn't strictly defined, with accommodations spread throughout several neighborhoods. To enjoy the most iconic Guayaquil setting, stay in the riverside neighborhood of Las Penas. For easy access to public parks and some of the best attractions in Guayaquil, stay in the bustling district of La Bahia. If you want a more suburban experience, look farther north to the neighborhood of Simon Bolivar.
