Ruins at Ingapirca

Day 1 Ingapirca

  • 1 Lunch
This day tour out of Cuenca takes you north to the fortress of Ingapirca, a major pre-colonial Inca site that dates back to the 15th century. Thought to have originally been built by the Canaris, this site was attacked by the Incas who then lived side by with the native Canaris in the city. Tour the ruins and visit the museum to learn more about the history of Ingapirca. Enjoy a local lunch and then visit the Biblian Sanctuary, home to the beautiful Virgen del Rocio Church. Depending on the day of the week, you will also have the chance to visit either the weavers of Biblian or one of the local markets. Return to Cuenca around 4:00 PM.

This tour is approximately 7 hours and runs daily.

Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu, Sat: Visit the weavers of Biblian. Friday and Sunday: Visit a local market

The trip was terrific with great planning on your part. Most of the adventures were not mainstream and somewhat off the beaten path which made it especially enjoyable!! We felt taken care of and you all were readily available to respond to questions and issues. I would highly recommend your company and friends have already expressed interest based on our pictures and excitement.
