“only view to south Quito is amazing there”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

only view to south Quito is amazing there. the rest - nothing really impressive. BTW, the surrounding area has quite bad criminal reputation, consider taking taxi if you go there. The hill itself is originally called Yarvic, but seems like few locals know it.

One of the first things we saw in Quito. It was okay, but at night it is beautiful.

“Mirador de Panecillo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2011

Monument on the top of the mountain overlooking Quito. Excellent lookout point for photos of the city. Refer to photos of Quito and Monument at http://www.facebook.com/notifications#!/media/set/?set=a.224847884244643.62490.100001582995299&type=1.

(Quito is very high altitude and very dry air, so people with respiratory issues should be aware.)
