Las Peñas was the primary neighborhood worked in Guayaquil – presently Ecuador’s biggest city. It was built 400 years back in average frontier Spanish style.
Tragically, it endured different annihilating flames that required reconstructing, yet dependably in the pilgrim style, even once Ecuador had picked up its freedom.
These restricted, cobblestoned roads and bright homes are amusing to investigate. In case you’re asking why all my photographs influence the area to appear to be abandoned, I should call attention to these were day break shots. I began my days out early running, and constantly twisted through Las Peñas before it was awakening and beginning its day.
In the nights, it’s energetic, with numerous bars, eateries and in the open air feasting getting a charge out of breezes from the waterway.
I was told by local people this used to be the intense piece of town, and that the police never ventured foot in these roads.
Things began to change once it was named a Heritage site, and financing started on renovating the area, starting in 2002. Bars, eateries and inns before long pursued, and this is presently a cherished Guayaquil neighborhood. A demonstration of urban reestablishment ventures.
Try not to pass up a meander around Las Peñas on your following visit to Guayaquil.
