Itchimbia is the site of the lovely crystal palace, as well as one of several large Quito signs. There is plenty of space to walk and wander around, and the views afforded from this hillside are simply magnificent. We explored here until almost dark, then...More

This hill provides good views of the city. There is a famous renovated glass building that used to be a market. It has a park for locals and nothing else. Not my favorite place.

If you have several days in Quito it may be worthwhile to visit. Otherwise this park is not one of the main points of attraction. It is on top of a high hill and views the historic city center nicely. But you can enjoy the...More

Great view of Quito. There's also a geocache up here to find. Lots of green space for kite flying or running around.

This is way above town so you get a view of the city but better view from the teleférico. The palace is just a big glass building, with some plants in it. If you lived close to here and wanted park time with the family...More

Our hotel was very close to this park so we wandered up early in the morning. It was full of friendly stray dogs and locals getting in their exercise. We snapped lots of photos of the city and one of the famous Quito sign. It...More
