Gualaceo & Chordeleg

Gualaceo & Chordeleg

$50 per person

The tour begins with the trip to the picturesque town of San Bartolomé, famous for the production of guitars.  There are several workshops along the main road.  We visit one of the shops as well as the central park and its church.

On the way we observe the famous Cholas Cuencanas, women who weave Panama hats while they walk or wait for the bus.  We arrive at the district of Chordeleg, where work in gold, silver, filigree, wood, ceramics, and more catch your attention.  We visit the central park and its church and allow free time for shopping.

Continuing the tour, we visit the typical Food Market of Gualaceo, where you may opt to try the delicious Chancho Hornado (Roasted Pork).  A plate consists of baked pork with llapingachos (potato) and salad.

We have lunch in a restaurant in the area.

Finally, we arrive at a workshop of Chales or “Macanas”, typical outfit of our Chola Cuencana.  The artisans explain the process of making these famous and unique fabrics.

Return to Cuenca.
