Stop in just for a minute. I was glad I poked my head inside. Beautiful interior. My hostel was right next to this place so I passed by it a lot. Do not need much time here, but worth the visit.

The wooden doors are reminiscent of the wood craft famous in San Antonio, right outside Otavalo. The Gothic style and building model is typical of Ecuador.

Completed in 1963 and 1964, Iglesia El Jordan is an architectural treasure including it's front façade and dome as well as the massive nave inside. Definitely worth a visit.
