We spent a happy afternoon walking around Quito and it's pretty with interesting architecture. If you're into churches, there are 27 to see. We organised tours for the rest of our time in Quito as there wasn't much more to see.

Wonderful site seeing in the Old Town. Grand Plaza - museums - churches and various shops well worth a day walk about. Although somewhat crowded occasionally felt safe everywhere. A ‘ not miss’ outing in Quito.........with some good coffee to be found in numerous locations.

A wonderful , colourful place to visit. Beware that it is very hilly and you need your walking shoes to get th3 best out of this city. A local guide will take you to all the most interesting places.

We enjoyed wandering the streets of the Old Town of Quito, and learning a bit about the history and visiting the beautiful churches and the plazas. Quito is a beautiful city, and if visiting this old town is a "must see".

There is a church in every block in old town. Most of them have wonderful art inside. They usually open for service and they usually have a sign at the door for the open hours for tourists.
