CIDAP is located at the river in a wonderful, restored colonial building, Av 3Nov near one of the walking bridges, across from the Military Hospital (and the Adobe rental and close to the Inca Lounge.) Nearest cross street is Av. Solano. Our previous post of our recent Sunday walk along the river has pictures of the neighborhood. We love this museum!
The exhibit runs through the month of Feb. If you're in town, you definitely should make the time to visit! You won't be disappointed. It's free, too!
We wanted to share some pics of some of our favorties...
Here are some elaborate ceremonial outfits from areas in Ecuador.
This is an outfit from the north. You can see the white insert at the side of the skirt. Different areas have different colors of the insert. Some say the Church dictated the insert for modesty, but not sure.
Some pottery with beadwork.
Musical instruments from the Esmaraldas area (Northern Ecuador)...wood and bamboo.
If you're in Cuenca, be sure to visit the exhibit!
These pictures are just a sample and there is lots more to see.
