    Independence Square is the soul of Quito. Although it is not big, it is very beautiful. In the middle is the Monument of Independence Goddess. The square is surrounded by plants and trees. Flowers are blooming all the year round. It is encountering purple sunflowers, amazing purple red and emerald green trees, as well as the blue sky. It creates a perfect picture, which is pleasing to the eye.

    Quito's Independence Square is located in front of the presidential palace. It is the most important and central square in Quito's old city. In the middle of the square stands the Monument to the Independent Heroes, tall and lofty. There are many excellent restaurants around the square. Every afternoon and evening, it becomes very busy. It is very popular with tourists and local people.

    It's a great place to relax, especially when we're hiking and just climbing up and down in Gutari, Lika, Brazil. It's a great place to take photos of old world architecture, listen to old people gossiping about their times, and then watch school children play. It reminds us of other great squares in the center of the old city, with many trees and benches for rest.

    The buildings around Independence Square are different in style, but they are very beautiful. We went on Sunday. There were a lot of people and street performances. They were very busy. Standing in the center of the square, the Independent Memorial Plate is a famous scenic spot.

    It's worth visiting, visiting Ecuador's history, learning about ancient buildings in South America, and enjoying Quito's enthusiasm. There are many places to visit in the nearby Quito ancient city, which is suitable for a slow turn.

    In the old city, I happened to meet the pupils'patriotic education when I went, and I met the talk show artists when I went in the evening. Behind the square is a Chinese restaurant opened by Fujian people, with local corn fried dumplings.

    The square itself is very beautiful, but it is not recommended to go on Sunday. Most of the nearby churches and other things are closed and can not get in. Go to the old city, pay attention to safety, there are many good restaurants around, there are many people, like this place very much.

    In the center of the square stands the statue of General Sucre, and at the eastern end stands the churches and monasteries of St. Domingo, known for their rich collection of wood carvings. Saint Agustin Castle here is the place where General Sucre signed the Ecuadorian Independence Agreement in person, and it has so far preserved the original appearance of that year. Near the square is the intersection of Ronda Avenue and Guayaquil Avenue, which is a busy commercial district with narrow and old streets, shops and pedestrians. Alameda Park, not far from the square, is a famous tourist area in Quito. It has streams, flying bridges, winding paths and fragrant birds and flowers. It has the oldest Observatory in South America, Simon &, Bolivar Monument and Art School.
