The Pumapungo Central Bank Museum, otherwise known as the Door of the Puma, is the only archaeological site located within the urban district of Cuenca. This ancient Cañari and Inca settlement, which was later dismantled by the Spanish conquistadors to build their new city, houses a large collection of ethnographic items from the region.
One of the city’s favorite museums, now housing an important collection of religious art that includes Christs, Virgins, nativity scenes, and altarpieces along with the tools that were part of the everyday life of the group of religious women who made the convent their home. 
Visit this authentic local market where you can get fresh fruits & veggies, local pork dishes, and a spiritual cleanse on the go.

The Remigio Crespo Museum is a heritage property that now houses important historical, artistic collections, as well as the city’s Historical Archive.

Paccari is an award-winning Ecuadorian chocolate brand, the largest and most recognized in the country. Its “experience house” in Cuenca is found inside the emblematic, historic and beautiful Casa del Coco.
Located in one of the oldest neighborhoods of the city, Todos Santos, the Museum of Aboriginal Cultures houses more than 5,000 pre-Columbian archaeological pieces. It is considered one of the most complete museums in Cuenca and the Latin American region.
