Chordeleg, just 5 kilometers away from Gualaceo, is a pre-Incan town where important archaeological objects can be found. You can either walk there or take a local bus, if you haven't already rented a motorbike to see Gualaceo. It's a very picturesque village with lovely old terraced houses with terracotta roofs. The village has wonderful views of the valley as it is built on the slope of the mountain. It is packed with art craft shops especially pottery and jewelery mostly gold, which is a tradition here and has been so from very old times. Prices are much better than Cuenca but be sure that the quality of gold you are buying is worthy of the money you are paying. There is also an ethnographic museum in the square and an open market in the main square on Sundays.
