First, we’ll go to the "Inti-Nan" In-Situ Museum (at about 2400 meters above sea level, about 7800 feet), where you can see replicas of the Ecuadorian Highlands and Amazon and, of course, to learn about the Quitu-Cara culture, their comprehension, long before the Geodesic Mission, on the stars, and, therefore, the empowerment of the term "Center of the World"; this visit takes about 45 minutes (entrance not included). After this, we’ll head to the Old-Town; our first stop is the Basilica, an impressive Gothic style temple, where we’ll also appreciate the 2 other viewpoints of the downtown; from here, our tour will continue on foot. We’ll make an easy down-hill walk through Garcia Moreno Street (a.k.a. the Seven crosses street), up to the Plaza Grande and the surrounding buildings (the Presidential and Archbishop's Palaces, the City-hall and the Cathedral) Then, we’ll continue to visit the Jesuits’ church ("La Campania de Jesus"), a beautiful temple built early in the 17th century (entrance not included)
