But what if you could immerse yourself in all the cultural wonders without the constant noise issues that can be an issue in El Centro? Today, I’m thrilled to present Casas del Ciprés, an exceptional rental option that offers just that.

Living at Casas del Ciprés means you’re close to everything Cuenca has to offer. Just a short walk from Parque Calderon, the cultural heartbeat of the city, you can enjoy festivals and events without sacrificing peace and quiet.

These patios provide a serene oasis, offering a touch of exclusivity and a connection to nature.

Award-Winning Design

Casas del Ciprés isn’t just visually stunning; it’s also highly acclaimed. It won the first national prize at the Panamerican Biennal of Architecture in Quito and the Fray José María Vargas Architectural Award from the Municipality of Cuenca. The innovative use of reclaimed bricks from the original older house, complemented by newly crafted ones to match, preserves the project’s historical charm. The internal patios adorned with native trees further enhance its authenticity.
