Parque Calderon Near the New Cathedral in Cuenca

Parque Calderon Near the New Cathedral in Cuenca


I love the old part of Cuenca. It has been around for hundreds of years and the Parque Calderon pictured above is at the center of this section of town. It is bordered on one side by the New Cathedral and on the other by the Old Cathedral built in 1557.


Both are tremendous works of art and have various artifacts from the history of Cuenca. In addition, several restaurants and ice cream shops are on the other sides. It is a landmark one does not want to miss. This photo was taken directly after a heavy rainstorm and the clouds were still hanging above the New Cathedral at the rear of the photo.

    Great shot. Would be fun to see this same photo on a cloudless, sunny day!

      Dear Lady of my Life,
      If I get the chance I will shoot it in full sunlight. Just for you! Love you!

    Mike – If you have not already done so, check out park lights after sunset hi-liting statue in Parque Calderon and face of Nueva Catedral(sp) then head north on Begnino Malo a few blocks to Santo Domingo to see lit up towers at night.

      Thanks for the advice. I know exactly what you are talking about and will endeavor to capture it. Just not sure if my little pocket Nikon digital will be able to handle the dark. Ha! Thanks for stopping by mi amigo!
