Ecuador — Cuenca; Inside the New Cathedral


New Cuenca Cathedral

Upon our return from viewing Eduardo Vega ceramics, Ecuagenera orchids, and La Casa de la Makana scarves, our tour returned us to Cuenca for our next attraction. We’ll get to that in a moment, but I thought I would share with you some Cuenca street scenes that greeted us stepping off the tour bus:

After several hours on our own, in which we and some fellow tour participants went back to Cositas 10-24 for dinner, we caught up again with the rest of the tour group for a visit inside the New Cuenca Cathedral, Catedral de la Inmaculada Concepción.

As you can see, the interior is at least as impressive as the façade. Here is view after stepping inside:

At the far end is, of course, the High Altar, presented in closer detail here:

But almost as impressive, in my view, is the magnificent dome above:
