"Inca Garden & Aviary" Top 5 Page for this destination Museo del Banco Central Pumapungo Tip by pure1942

Beneath the terraces of Pumapungo is an interesting extension of the museum and archaeological ruins. Here, a beautiful garden has been laid out and displays native Ecuadorian plants, shrubs and flowers and typical Inca vegetables such as sweet potatoe, quinoa, corn and other ‘Inca’plants and vegetables.
Just a short walk further on is the Aviary which houses rescued and injured native birds. Toucans, eagles, parrots and other equatorial birds can be seen (and heard!!!) in this small but interesting Aviary

Address: Calle Larga, Cuenca, Ecuador
Directions: Follow the path from the top of the hill and archaeological ruins down to the gardens and Aviary
