The Quilotoa Lagoon is one of the tourist destinations in the Ecuadorian highlands where nature has been writing its poetry for more than 800 years. It was the eruption of the Quilotoa volcano that originated a 250-meter deep caldera that, due to its minerals, gives it a turquoise green tone when the lagoon receives the impact of sunlight. A destination of natural peace in South America that, according to many researchers, would have been the last resting place of the Inca Atahualpa: the last Inca emperor who ruled from Quito during a civil war against his brother.
