Our tour to the charming Artisan Villages starts at the Arutam Ecotours office at 9 am. First we will stop in the small town of San Bartolomé, where you can observe the process of making guitars. Then, we will visit Chordeleg, which is famous for its traditionally-made jewelry of fine gold and silver, where you can stroll along the main road and plaza and visit the many jewelry shops. Afterwards, we will visit a silversmith and you can watch him creating this fine jewelry art work. Before our last stop you’ll enjoy a delicious lunch. Then you pass Gualaceo to get to a weaving workshop. The weavers produce different products like scarves using a special “ikat technique” to pattern textiles. If you like, we can also stop at the Orchid Farm before going back to Cuenca.
