Espíndola is a canton located in the Province of Loja, Ecuador. Eventhough the Equator passes through Ecuador, Espíndola is located in the Southern Hemisphere and is considered one of the poorest towns in the country. This cantón owes its name to the mighty river that crosses the region. Some people assure that in 1860 this region was owned by a very powerful indigenous woman called Cacica Francisca Chigua. By the early 1900s, she sold this land to very rich families, including the Eguiguren, who enslaved all of their workers and gave people and animals a very inhuman treatment.
Today, when you visit this place, you’ll enter to a magical world with charming people. Espíndola is known for its rich nature and biodiversity of flora and fauna. Its coffee reflects the sweetness of people in the area and the beauty of its views.
