The Battle of Pichincha, May 24, 1822 – driving around?

Cuenca Car Share would like to invite you to enjoy the 3-day holiday weekend of May 22-24 with a rented car. Barring any lockdowns, you can get out of the city and travel on this day dedicated to the soldiers who fell in battle on the flanks of the Pichincha volcano overlooking Quito.

In Cuenca, you probably have visited Parque Calderon – named for the native Cuencano, Abdón Calderón Garaycoa who died shortly after the battle where he was wounded 4 times but refused to leave the battle. You have traveled along Sucre street in downtown Cuenca – remember? It was named for General Sucre, the general in charge of liberating Cuenca and Quito and defeating the Spanish armies. Read up on this – it is quite a good history about the liberation of Gran Colombia and, eventually, Ecuador from Spanish rule.

If you want to rent a car for this weekend, please contact me at Cuenca Car Share as soon as possible to ensure that one is available. Remember that banks and many businesses will be closed on Monday, May 24 – plan ahead. Thank you.

Calle Canton Saraguro s/n and Manuel Arturo Cisneros, Cuenca
