Cuenca Street Art

Walk down any street in Cuenca and you will see the works of talented artists. Some of the street art is commissioned by the City of Cuenca but, the majority are the masterpieces of first time painters. Below are some photos and a video of my favorites.

Cuenca is fast becoming a city known for its diverse restaurants.  El Meson Español  is a Spanish Restaurant located on Benigno Malo and Juan Jarimillo. The restaurant features Spanish Food from Barcelona.  Last week, Dani one of the owners booked a superb Flamenco Dancing Group from Guayaquil. They were marvelous and the food was fantastic.

Every seat in the  restaurant was taken. Besides the great dancers there was a terrific band entertaining between the Dancers. Definitely put El Meson Español on your must see list of restaurants.

Every Dec.24th Cuenca hosts the giant parade of the children. It’s estimated that over 100,000 people participate in the parade. Cars, trucks, vans and pedestrians line up before dawn to parade almost 2 miles to the Central Park in Cuenca. Cuencanos are usually a little camera shy but on this day everyone poses. There’s almost as many vendors as there are participants. This is our third parade since moving down from Oregon and today the temperature hit 80 degrees which is hot for Cuenca. Enjoy the photos and video.
