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

Beyond expectations! Then again we weren't sure what to expect. Lovely stay at the lodge, met other like-minded travelers (many had their trips planned by Adventure Life) and the owner was a gracious hostess. It felt like you were one happy family, visiting with a favorite aunt.
