Cuenca at Night

I love when unique architecture is highlighted by lights at night, it can really create a magical environment.  Here's some photos I've taken over the years to show what parts of Cuenca look like at night.


These first two are of government buildings surrounding the central park, Parque Calderon.

The 'Old Cathedral'

Pedestrian bridge over the river Tomebamba.

Looming behind my apartment.

The 'New Cathedral' with full moon.

Church of Santo Domingo

Monasterio Las Conceptas

Recently renovated Todos Santos
(I wrote a blog about this and climbing to the top of the front spire to stand along side a statue of Jesus)
A Catholic University
Next door to where I live.

Church on the hillside overlooking Banos, Cuenca.

With all the unique architecture in Cuenca, you would THINK they would jump at the chance to highlight the most novel of the newest piece of archictecture introduced in recent years.

Illuminate the orange ball (of the Planetarium) and have 'moving' lights around the ring...but the rest left dark.

But.....noooooooooo.   πŸ˜’πŸ˜’πŸ˜’πŸ˜’

About Me

My photo
Palma, Mallorca, Spain
This is all about my transition from an American lifestyle and culture to my newest adventure, life in Spain, in the city of Palma on the island of Mallorca in the middle of the Mediterranean sea!! I moved from the USA to Cuenca, Ecuador, South America and lived there for 7 years before moving here to Spain in early 2018. To read about my adventures in Ecuador, check out my other blog "Ahhh Cuenca!!". I'll be recapping some of my day-to-day experiences (and mishaps) to highlight what it's like to live in Europe....across the pond.
