Quito Cathedral is the most iconic building in Quito, the capital of Ecuador. It is also known as the National Oath Cathedral. The church is a typical Gothic building. The two towers are symmetrical, tall and magnificent. The towers can reach the top of the tower through outdoor iron stairs. Some are surprised. The timid are cautious. But standing on the top of the tower, you can see all the hills and mountains. Quito has a panoramic view at his feet. It feels good.
Quito Cathedral in Ecuador, also known as the National Oath Cathedral, is the largest church in Ecuador. The church is very large, with two tall towers straight into the sky. Climbing to the top of the tower overlooks the whole city of Quito. The interior of the church is solemn and solemn, with bright-coloured glass and mostly biblical stories. Sunshine shines through stained glass into the church. It has a hallucinating feeling. It's really sacred.
Quito Ecuador, the capital of the equatorial country, is named after the "equator". Quito is also the only capital across the equator in the world and the second highest capital at elevation. Not only that, the old city of Quito has a large number of well-preserved buildings that integrate Spanish, Moore, Indian and other styles, especially churches, spectacular appearance and gorgeous interior decoration, forming a "Quitobaroque style" plus colorful streets, no wonder it is called the most beautiful colonial ancient city in South America, and the first to be selected as the world cultural heritage.
Quito's short stay did not affect the appreciation of Quito's beauty. The magnificent buildings in the old city include the magnificent Gothic Quito Cathedral and the solemn and solemn St. Francisco Monastery, the oldest monastery in South America. Just in time for last Sunday, imagine that if I were a Christian, I would also enjoy a peaceful evening.
Today is the weekend and all the cathedrals are open at 6 a.m. On Eucharist Day, there are many activities. There are 87 churches, monasteries and almost every street in Quito. Along the way, we went to the famous Plaza de San Francisco Monastery, the National Oath Cathedral, and Iglesia de La Compa &s.
It is the largest New Gothic Church in America. The shape is deeply influenced by Europe. The front structure is similar to Catedral de Burgos Cathedral in Spain and Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. The biggest bright spot is the steeple, the highest point 115 meters from the ground. Visitors can climb to the top of the Bell Tower through ladders built outside the building and enjoy the panoramic view of the old city from above.
Such an interesting and beautiful church. The tour guide pointed out that the local craftsmen made some sculptures to incorporate the local animals into the external monsters. Look closely, you will see lizards, turtles, monkeys, simple beautiful touches and explanations in more places.
Outside it looks like an open chrysanthemum, but inside it is very beautiful, translucent blue sky as the background, a few angels hanging in the middle, there is a little heaven screaming. Not many people come to visit, and even fewer Chinese people.
The restaurant is a great cathedral - I just want my friend and I to book a tour guide because all the information is in Spanish. Our time is limited, so we only explored some of the attractions of the cathedral itself and the museum (unfortunately, we didn't find any caves or go anywhere to the bell tower). We also missed the coffee shop at the top. It's definitely worth seeing. Remember, photographs are not allowed in the cathedral.
There's a lot to see here, and although there's Mass here, we still appreciate what we've experienced here. Maybe we will be very excited to see the church, but I think everybody can find something that fits in with their heart in this place.
