For a fantastic view of Cuenca by night or day, head up the mountain to the tiny village of Turi. Stroll along Turi's main street past the mural-covered church, and you'll soon find yourself in rolling hills where stucco farmhouses punctuate cornfields and potato patches. Up here there's also a workshop of Eduardo Vega, a well-known artist, where you'll see his ceramics and paintings. A taxi is the best way to get here, but make sure to ask the driver to wait for you.
