2×4 FROM TWO BY TOUR: CUENCA STREET ART PT. IV

Cuenca, Ecuador has a lot to offer the eager sight-seer. The city’s reputation for beauty is well deserved, but something that seems missing from tourism literature is the city’s thriving street art scene. The UNESCO Heritage city is known for its religious structures, but around the corner from that church, there’s undoubtedly something just as compelling.

Traveling, by definition, takes you out of your comfort zone, at least at first. As you travel more, you become adept at finding signposts of familiarity. Even in places where you may not speak the language, there’s still going to strong threads of universal human experience that binds us all together. For us, one of those signposts is street art. Cuenca, Ecuador has it in spades.

While our research into Cuenca, Ecuador had already let us know the city was known for its appreciation of the arts, the explosion of color and feeling that awaited us was a truly wonderful surprise.
