What people are saying:

El Panecillo is a hill with a statue of the Virgin on the top of the hill, built during the colonial period. From there, you can see the scenery of the historical city, but the security along the way is not good. Even in the daytime, tourists are recommended to take a taxi.

    Impressive

    this massive staty is worth a stop. Although erected as late as in 1975, it was designed already back in the 19th century.
