The National Oath Church is called "Basilica" 151 meters by the locals. You can see its tall figure on any side of the city. It is indeed tall enough, but it is very simple when you enter it, without much. There is an additional charge for the summit, which is not expensive, and we were tired and did not make it. The other churches in Quito are much more luxurious than this one.

The church is really gorgeous, and visitors can climb one of the spires for $2. Climbing to the roof of the nave, in addition to viewing the interior design of the church from top to bottom, the surprise is to see the stained glass windows up close! Since the tower is very thin and can only accommodate a few people, it is necessary to queue up the stairs. The minaret is more than 100 meters above the ground.
The Basilica of the National Vows, a neo-Gothic church built in the 19th century, is quite large. It looks like Notre Dame de Paris. You can climb the tower and overlook the old town of Quito with a $2 ticket, but the stairs are very steep. For those who fear heights, the rose window is very beautiful.
