Historical Center of Quito

Many people come to see Quito but why is the Old Town one of the most beautiful and visited places of Ecuador?
Well, basically the main reason is that the buildings, churches and the environment are unique in this part of Quito. Our tour will start with one of the gothic churches La Basílica del Voto Nacional with its unusual decoration, after this we will stop in the main square where are some of the most important government buildings such as the Presidential Palace and the City Hall, this is a perfect place to take many pictures.
One of the most magnificent churches is near to the Independence square this is the church of Company of Jesus , this church could be visited by the people every day during the day except for the Sundays which is open in the afternoon because in the morning there are services.

Let's discover the history and traditions of the town that contrast to the modern environment of Quito that we can observe from one of the viewpoints Panecillo.


We left the point where passengers gather and headed to the historic center of Quito, where we will visit some places including Independence Square with its most important buildings such as the Government Palace, the Archbishop's Palace among others, after this walking we headed to one of the most striking churches in South America, the Society of Jesus, and then we will go to one of the oldest streets of Quito called La Ronda street which keeps a nice atmosphere with colonial balconies and decorated by colorfull flags and geraniums. Then we drive to the Plaza de San Francisco where Quito's oldest church and finally the car will take us to a lookout called the Bagel from where we have a spectacular view of the ancient and modern city , then return to the hotel or starting point.
