  Municipio, Plaza Vicente León
by DanielF

Latacunga is the provincial capital of Cotopaxi. Although it has had to endure several earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, some of the colonial buildings, built in porous volcanic stone, still stand in the centre of the city, in particular around the main square, dedicated to the memory of the city's main benefactor, don Vincent Lion.

Directions: On the Yanayacu and Cutuchi rivers, in the heart of the Equatorian andes.
