We had such a huge response to last week’s Saturday Salon about Pre-Colonial Cuenca, that we have added an extra date so nobody is left out!
In this Salon you will learn what Cuenca was like before the arrival of the Spanish Conquistadores. You will learn about the city of Tomebamba and the aboriginal tribes of the Cañari and the Inca civilization, the differences between the two, their art, mythology, world vision, and other aspects that configure the origins of Cuenca.
There is also an optional visit to the Museum of Culturas Aborigenes guided and translated by Berenice Cardenas and the director of the Museum. Here, you will have the chance to see artifacts that will help you better understand pre-columbian Cuenca.
Berenice Cárdenas is from Cuenca, Ecuador and has her master’s degree in Art History from the University of Chile. She is an independent art historian, researcher, lecturer, teacher, translator and writer with interests in Latin American Colonial Art, Baroque Iconography, Female Iconography in the Renaissance period and handicrafts in the Latin American Colonial Period.
The salon is at 10:30 AM. It costs $10
The museum tour is at 2 PM and costs $8 and includes entrance into the museum.
Reservations are required as we have limited seating.
