Alausí is a town in the Chimborazo province of Ecuador.HistoryDuring the Spanish conquest of Ecuador, the city was named by Sebastián de Belalcázar as San Pedro de Alausí, giving the city the name of the saint of the day, coinciding with the founding of the city of Quito. On the 3rd (Tue), browse the fresh offerings at Thursday Market. Here are some ideas for day two: don't miss a visit to Monumento a la Libertad, then take some stellar pictures from Mirador de San Pedro, then don't miss a visit to El Reloj Publico, and finally make a trip to Estacion Ferrocarril.
