Owner description: This Jesuit church is a masterpiece of baroque and Quiteno-colonial art with lavish golden altars and gilded columns, making it one of the most ornate structures in Ecuador.
Reviewed November 5, 2012

THIS CHURCH is so pretty all GOLD
the most important fact is that in the Altar lies the ecuadorian saint Mariana of Jesus, each day daily mass at 5pm the entrance at that time if you r catholic and want to be in mass is FREE other way u will need to pay 3 usd to go inside.

guided tours available

A must see if you are in old town Quito. It's only $3 for non Ecuadoreans and $1.50 for students and citizens. The church is stunning and the details and gold everywhere are amazing. My only complaint is that they don't allow pictures but I understand. I wish they had had postcards at least and maybe they did but I did not see them.

It's a wonderful place to visit when you go to the oldtown Quito, beautiful paintings and esculptures, all in shining gold!! Recently renovated, it's one of the most beautiful churches I've visited in my whole live!

Who would have thought from its modest exterior? This church almost glows from the amount of gold inside. If you visit one historic building in Quito, it should be this one.

It's quite grand and beautiful. It's worth a visit, avoid Sunday, as they would stop tourists from going in on Sunday to allow local worshippers to partake the services.
