Welcome to Ambato


The city is proud of its cultural heritage and nicknames itself 'Land of the Three Juans' after the writers Juan Montalvo and Juan León Mera, and lawyer/journalist Juan Benigno Malo. All three Juans are immortalized in Ambato’s parks, museums and buildings.

In 1947 an earthquake destroyed Ambato, the capital of Tungurahua province, and a modern city was rebuilt.
