In this video, IL postcards editor, Len Galvin is in the main square of Chordeleg, Ecuador’s “silver town”, where you’ll find most of the little stores selling silver jewelry.
Chordeleg is one of Ecuador’s “guild villages,” a system inherited from Spain that means each town or village specializes in a craft. Chordeleg (about 25 miles from Cuenca) is the village of the silversmiths.
Editor’s note: From craft villages in the mountains where the air is crisp and cool, to the colonial splendor of the capital Quito and the beautiful Pacific coast beaches, Ecuador is a country that has the perfect lifestyle to suit you, whatever your tastes. We’re going to Ecuador this November for the Live and Invest in Ecuador Seminar 2011. Find out more about this conference here.
