“beautiful church”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

This church is amazing and only a couple of bucks to get in. Something to look at everywhere, lots of fine detail that could be easily missed. Well worth the time spent there.

“Impressive sight!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

It was amazing to see all of the gold. This church is beautiful! We thought it was a really interesting sight to see with our young children! Don't forget to keep your ticket because you need it to get out.

“Stunning!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013 via mobile

Heard a lot about the Church, but when you are there it is just stunning!! Gold everywhere. I do not know if there is another church with as much gold as this one, but if you visit Quito, you must see it.

“over opulent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

the church was of course beautiful. Staff were very willing to show you around their wonderful church. As a Catholic, I struggled to justify the overwhelming riches. The same all over the world I guess.
