Ambato is known as Cuna de los Tres Juanes, Fénix del Ecuador, Tierrita Linda, Garden of Ecuador and City of Flowers, Fruits and Bread. But the most popular title of Ambato is the Land of Flowers and Fruits, the name is due to the great variety of fruits that are produced in this region, such as the typical claudias and the guaytambos (peaches), or farms that surround the city, the title is fully justified.
Ambato is a land with a varied architecture. A characteristic that makes it unique is its popular cultural manifestations; its maximum expression is given with the Feast of Fruit and Flowers during the Carnival.
