The old city of Quito, the capital of Ecuador, is a World Heritage Site, but it looks like Europe at first glance, except that the people walking on the road are a little darker and shorter. Today is Sunday, and all churches are praying. Visit the Cathedral of San Francisco. The glass windows of the church are brightly colored and beautiful in shape. It was said on the Internet that we could go up to the second floor and the view was very good. We went up to the second floor inside the church and found that there was nothing. Later we learned that it was the second floor from the outside stairs, but the door was closed. There is an ice cream seller at the entrance of the church, and the vendor stirs it with a spoon in a constantly rotating pan. There are ice cubes on the outside of the pan to keep it cold.
I went out to the former residence of Columbus that day and accidentally discovered the San Francisco Monastery. The two places are very close about 100 meters. The building is very beautiful. The interior decoration of this church should be the most gorgeous of all the churches in Quito. All are It's golden, it's worth a visit, it seems to be free.
The Basilica of San Francisco is the largest church in Christ. It is located on the square of the Presidential Palace. The interior decoration of this church is very luxurious. Many believers come here to pray every day. The music inside the church plays the mass music. Very elegant and relaxing.
It's on the side of Independence Square in Quito. It is a typical Latin American Baroque style building. The appearance is very simple, and the inside is also very simple, with a lot of tourists, more clergy and believers.
The Convent of San Francisco in Quito is located opposite the Presidential Palace in Quito. It is an old church with a history of more than 600 years. The interior decoration of the church is very luxurious and solemn. Many devout believers come here to pray every day. The shrines of the church are very complex, magnificent and luxurious. It is definitely one of the best churches in Central and South America.
The church has been recently restored so it looks stunning. Visit the Chorus and do not miss, the convent s museum, is worth it, a fine collection of colonial sculptures and paintings.
Let me begin by saying I am an atheist. Why does that matter? Because I've never been inside a building so awe-inspiring, so beautiful. The oldest church in Quito, and I believe in South America, the ...
again, due to the pandemic, we were not let inside. However, the church is spectacular and also enjoyable from the outside.
We visited as part of a tour excursion. So glad we did. The gold work is incredible. There is a lot of history here and we thoroughly enjoyed the stop.
Completed in the 1600, this is the largest colonial styled Church in Latin America. The interior especially the ceiling is stunning. And it houses the Virgin of Quito.
