What is it?

Riobamba is one of those cities where you happen to spend just the night, becuse on the following morning you have to do the train ride. But Riobamba has indeed many more than just the beautiful train station, so take 2 to 4 hours to explore some of the interest points of the city, and participate in one of those unexpected parades in the old town plazas. Best combined with a city tour, or as a free time activity on the day before the train ride.

Sightseeing.
