Visited this beautiful church as well as the others in the town center. We also explored the gardens and toured the museum. Very dramatic church and the paintings in the museum are well worth it. Impressive.

Breathtaking chapel and courtyard in this Old Town church and plaza. The adjoining restaurant serves some relatively good Ecuadoran cuisine.
