 AMBATO

The city of Ambato, destroyed by the earthquake in 1949 and subsequently rebuilt, is the fourth-biggest city in Ecuador and the capital of Tungurahua Province. But this rather ugly metropolis with a population of well over 100,000, known for its production of cement, shoes, food processing and distilling, doesn't have much to offer tourists. For most tourists Ambato is a stopover en route to somewhere else. Travellers from Quito usually pass through to the popular resort of Banos, or they continue southwards along the Pan-American Highway towards Riobamba and Cuenca.
