"The Original that is ignored by the Faithful" Calacalí by Assenczo

Calacalí Travel Guide: 0 reviews and 2 photos

Where it all started

This little town seems so forgotten that it is almost painful. But why? It is on the right spot and has all the potential for glory. One and maybe only reason is the fact that it is further off the main road and enclosed in a fertile valley where there is no room for expansion. Tourism in Ecuador needs expansion. The equator celebration is no exception. The monuments should be big enough to reflect the importance of it and to accommodate the crowds not only outside but inside as well. There should be room for other attractions such as stores, churches, non mainstream approaches to calculating it and so on. Poor original has been left in the oblivion of its rural location and there is no hope unless some sensible people figure its significance as the First one from European point of view anyway. Please, do not ignore it!

    I didn't visit Calacalí during my last visit to Ecuador, but I went to La Mitad del Mundo.
