Historically the houses in Cañar were made of adobe and tile roofs in order to retain heat and bare the varying climates in Ecuador.

Some houses go unfinished inside without bathrooms, electricity or even families living in them. Some new, brightly painted homes are merely a trophy of their newfound wealth from remittances.
