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.

This church is amazing on the outside but spectacular on the inside. My husband and I walked around and just soaked up all the gold!:) it reminded me of Thailand where everything seems to be covered in gold or gols leaf and totally overdone but amazing beautiful at the same time. Cost wasmimthin 2$ per person but well worth it if you have to pick one church to go too.

So beautiful!! From the inside it's a magnificent church with its golden walls and golden art everywhere. You should spend the entrance fee and enjoy a guided tour of that church. It's worth it.

I attended mass at this Church built by the Jesuits in the 1700's and it is breathtaking .
The interior is filled with art from the famous Ecuador School and is decorated in the Mudejar Style, covered totally in gold leaf.The interior literally glows . It feels alive. Be sure to visit this Church when you visit Quito.

As all the churches in Quito, this was spectacular. The " pan de oro", the altar, the chapels were just exquisite. But the best part of the whole experience was that we attended mass there. Historic, beautiful, peaceful and folkloric, all in the same place.

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.
