Loja was the thriving base from which Spanish conquistadors sallied forth to explore the jungle just over the mountains. Loja's main advantage is its proximity to one of Ecuador's most diverse protected areas, the vast Parque Nacional Podocarpus, spanning chilly highland páramo (grassland) and sweltering jungle within its wild confines. Its cuisine, its musical traditions and its university are known across Ecuador and beyond. The city’s slopes are filled with vast coffee plantations that must be seen.
