I've decided to post the IWOs I made about my city, Cuenca, while on KC, plus a bonus one of the city where I lived most of my life, Loja.
This part is called "El Barranco", and it's a ravine near one of the rivers.
1, 2, and 4 are more of the zone from different angles. 3 is another river in the city.
And now a few shots from the the outskirts of the town.
A few more shots of the outskirts before I move on.
Shown here are a few streets of the Historic Centre of Cuenca, an UNESCO Word Heritage site.
And as I move through the streets, I get close to the Central Square, which used to be the center of government during the colony.
Now we're seeing different parts of the central park. You can see a glimpse of the cathedral in a few of the pics.
1) A pretty nice building, IMHO, used to be the city's courthouse.
2) Same building from a bit further away.
3) The Provincial government's building.
4) The Cathedral
Now a few more shots of the central park and its surroundings, in # 3 and # 4 you can see the flower market that's open everyday.
Now a bit of the Flower Market and moving away towards the Central Park again.
Some of the building in the central square up close and the I moved on.
That looks cozy as fuck and I'm saying that as someone from a well-preserved middle age town. Reminds me a bit of Malta, just without the sea and with more spanish.
I take it the crime rate is rather low? It somewhat looks like it. (Sorry that one of the first things I think of when hearing south america is crime rate)
That feel when no tropical andean territory to build cozy cities.
Now I'm going towards the church of "San Alfonso", which apparently means "St Alphonsus" in English. You can see it in the first two pictures.
In the 3rd pic there is a nice building but I'm not sure what it's used for now, then I move right towards the market.
Yes, it's very cozy. And yes, crime is much lower in Cuenca than in the rest of the country, the two biggest cities usually get most of it.
Actually the weather in the city is temperate.
Now as I go towards the market I enter a more... popular area of town.
And here I am, very close to the market.
1) Inside the market
2) Outside the market
Now I'm moving away from the market towards a friend's house.
And I finally got to my friends house, you can see some very cancerous street vendors in some pics.
The previous pics were taken last year, the ones I'm about to show were taken last month.
First one is a random street, next you can see the market I mentioned in my previous posts in full, last one is of the place called "El Barranco" that I mentioned earlier, taken from a car so not very good.
A few more shots of "El Barranco", the last pic is a secondary school called "Benigno Malo", the first secondary is school in he city.
A few more of the Area, in 2 and 3 you can see an old bridge and some stairs that were used to cross the river, in the last one a newer bridge.
Now a few pictures of the historic centre from a car, again.
A few more parts of the historic centre.
Nice IWO, OP. But they should plant something in the central area, even if it's only small bushes.
I took some pictures of the central park again but of different buildings this time. One of those actually burnt a few weeks ago, you can see the police tape around it.
They should plant a few more things.
And now I'm going around a street near the central square.
You can see the building that had the fire in some of the shots, just look for the tape.
Just around the block...
This is the modern part of town. As you can see there's bricks everywhere.
CIty of polished bricks.
Cuenca at night.
Thanks for the additional pictures! :3
It looks cozy and beautiful as fuck.
Many thanks, OP.
