Fodor's Review

Ecuador's Central Bank is a vast repository of art and artifacts, which it displays in museums around the country. This concrete-and-glass structure is its Cuenca installation. Among the archaeological treasures are ceramics and jewelry from the pre-Incan Cañari culture. The museum also contains an impressive collection of colonial and postcolonial art. On the river behind the museum is a small archaeological site where Incan ruins are being excavated.
