  1. From the main bus station, you take the bus to Sigsig that also says “San Bartolomeo” on the sign. Many locals refer to San Bartolomeo as “San Bartolo.” In general, I was underwhelmed with the guitars I saw in San Bartolomeo, but some of the shops were closed. I did get a pretty nice charango. Back in Cuenca, I purchased a rather nice classical guitar for $300 from a luthier within walking distance from the bus station, Jesus Ortega. His shop is called “Hortegs.” You can easily find more information on the Hortegs shop (including a video about the place) on Google.

  2. I can’t find San Bartolome on Google Maps? Were exactly is it and how do you get to it from Cuenca?

  3. I am very interested in purchasing a hand made guitar from San Bartolome. Can you provide pictures and information on your products?

    • Hi Stan: Sorry, but I’m not the maker. I’m just a writer who did an article on the handmade products available around Cuenca, Ecuador. I’m sure a Google search would turn up more information.
