Puerta de la Ciudad, Loja
(4.4/5 based on 95+ reviews on the web)
Charged with the task of being the city's first impression, Puerta de la Ciudad gallantly greets visitors with its arched doorway and two imposing turrets. This castlelike entrance welcomes visitors on the main street, guarding the central plazas that can be found just inside. The castle gate houses an art museum that focuses on modern expression of local identity. Throughout the museum you'll also find an archeology gallery with tools and weapons belonging to pre-Hispanic cultures, a cafeteria, craft store, and vantage points overlooking the city.
