Good little spot with some interesting history. Ideally located within the touristy areas so it is very close to a variety of other points of interest. Not a ton here, but since it is free, why not?

A tour of this beautiful and beautifully-maintained home is both a lesson on the history of Ecuador and a glimpse of upper-class life in Quito in the 1800's. Our English-speaking guide was full of interesting information.
