You can walk from your hotel to some of the most interesting destinations in Cuenca. Although the Church of Santo Domingo was built in the last century, it does have a small collection of colonial paintings. Around the corner, you’ll find the Old Cathedral. The Old Cathedral has a large collection of religious art. You won’t be interrupting services to look at the paintings – the New Cathedral serves as Cuenca’s main church, while the Old Cathedral functions as a museum. Take a break from colonial art at the Museo de Arte Moderna, and see some of the greatest works of art produced in South America. Venture south of the historic district to Cuenca’s Mirador de Turi, a lookout on the edge of town, located about 15 minutes from the hotel. From here you’ll be able to see all of Cuenca.
Hotel Presidente’s historic neighborhood is also one of Cuenca’s liveliest, and has plenty of dining options for hungry travelers. At the hotel, you can get brunch, lunch, and dinner at the Los Faroles restaurant. It serves upscale cuisine with Mediterranean influences. Stop by the hotel’s Manhattan Bar for classic cocktails, beer, and wine. The Manhattan Bar is designed to make travelers feel at home.
