Ecuador Things to Do: 371 reviews and 740 photos
The Museo del Banco Central actually on the grounds of an ex-Incan site, called Tomebamba. It is not as well-preserved as the nearby Ingapirca site, but apparently, Tomebamba was a more important site.
So, once you have finished your museum visit, you should head out to the Archaeological Park to check out the ruins of Tomebamba, some walls and crumbled structures.
Further on, you can even visit a park down at the bottom of the hilly ruins where they recreated agricultural produces and other flora of the Incan and pre-Incan days.
There was even a bird aviary with many parrots and some birds of prey. The most impressive bird there must be the King Vulture, with his purplish, pink face, the yellow ‘pony-tail’ running down the back of its neck and the orange rubbery stuff flopping around on top of its orange beak. What a combination of colours, just for the face alone!
