Its location is on ancient Inca ruins and it was built for the religious followers of Cuenca. The El Sagrario is not consecrated anymore and serves only as a museum.
- New Cathedral of Cuenca: The construction of the new cathedral took quite a few years to complete. Construction had started in 1885, but building was staggered over the years so the cathedral was only completed in 1967. But the wait was worth-while and today people can enjoy looking at the magnificent blue and white domes that decorate the skies, the pink marbled floors, gold applications by the altar, stained glass windows and marble and alabaster facades.

- El Barranco: The riverfront of the Tomebamba River is the most symbolic site of Cuenca, and serves as limit between the historical and the modern city.

The Pumapungo Ruins, the Central Bank and Remigio Crespo Toral Museums, the "Todos los Santos" vestiges, and other sites along this riverside offer cultural and artistic exhibits.
