Ambato history

Ecuador, Ambato city

Ambato has developed into an architectural marvel where modern buildings coexist elegantly with colonial edifices. Modern structures give the city a metropolitan feel while at the same time they enhance the remaining colonial architecture.

Ambato's attractions

The "Fiesta de las Flores y las Frutas" during the last two weeks of February is the City's most important celebration.  This celebration provides the best presentation of folk music in the Tungurahua Province and includes numerous parades of colorful floats and traditional dancers.

The Fiesta demonstrates the warmth and hospitality the people of Ambato are known for. Ambato is a good place to buy Salasaca Amerindian tapestries and other handicrafts (Monday is the main market day, with smaller ones on Wednesday and Friday).

Sights include the Quinta de Mera (historic home), the local museum and the relaxing Juan Montalvo park (named after the Ecuadorian political essayist)
