What people are saying:

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.

    Stunning, Overwhelming, Will Leave You Speechless

    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 ...

    Huge church

    again, due to the pandemic, we were not let inside. However, the church is spectacular and also enjoyable from the outside.

    Houses Virgin of Quito

    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.
