Visit towns that are known for their handicrafts. We start our tour out of the northwestern side of the city of Cuenca with a visit to “San Bartolome” a little town next to the Andes mountain range, with an amazing view of the valley of River Santa Bárbara. This town is famous for its crafty artisans in making guitars. We will visit a traditional shop to observe the process of making this musical instrument. We continue to “Chordeleg” a town known around the country for its ceramic, gold and silver jewelry and above all for their fine filigree work made of gold and silver threads.
