Ecuador is mostly a Christian country, so there are many Churches, many Crosses.
You will see both everywhere in Cuenca.
In early days, entrances to the City were marked by a Cross. Some of these Crosses are still here. Some examples:
This Cross was known as the 'Humiliation Cross' in Old Cuenca. It's where the bad guys were tied up, whipped for their sins and sent out of town.
This Cross is located on an old building at the Square, across from the Church.
This Church is under renovation. You can also see the fun artwork on the fence surrounding construction.
It's located at the Plaza Del Vado, the location of the new cultural center (we've been sharing the pics of the ongoing construction of this area on previous blogs).
Today, this Cross often has decorations and flowers added by the faithful.
This picture was taken from Av Munoz...another lovely old Church and Cross.
Our hearts are with the Watson family this week.
